Ever just feel like everybody else’s issues supersede yours? It’s like my sisters having problems with her bowel, my mom is having problems with her heart and sometimes I feel like it’s selfish of me to wanna go in and have this thing taken care of when I could be using my Resources to help somebody else.
Why can’t you use your resources while you’re waiting for your procedure? I don’t mean that in a negative way, I think it will help you to not focus on your upcoming procedure and give yourself a break from it. Helping others is in our blood and when we can’t help, it becomes more stressful and confusing. They would probably appreciate some active listening as we all do. You don’t need to be the “fixer”, since they’re both having health issues that are out of your control.
