It's amazing how our feelings, wants, needs and selfishness have a tendency to sabotage all aspects of our lives. I find it difficult juggling my needs with my family's needs at times. When I do try to fulfill those needs they backfire and cause a great deal of chaos in my life. Is there really a way to compromise? To give my family what they need while fulfilling my own needs? Often times, my feelings tend to overpower my own common sense. This usually leads to my inability to remain rational. I am wondering if other people out there struggle with the same internal conflict as I do. Perhaps it is possible to care so much that it hurts? Or is it just hard to accept the we are worth what we want and need?

I think I can relate here, I just cannot remember what my needs are anymore. I keep trying to fight a losing battle.

You have to take care of your needs in order to be able to take care of your families needs .. and that is the most important thing to remember.
