  • I read this but after the blatant sexist blather about how apparently only MEN get caught up in earning a living I just couldn't focus on the message.

    Sweetheart - not all of us women out here a the submit graciously types so do get off the kick that women are doing all the house work all the time and men are out there beating their chests and hunting for meat to bring home. I have a job, my husband has a job, we both have a lot of work stress. It's not a competition.

    This could have been written much better in a gender neutral way.

  • I truly need to get better at this. I am too quick to offer help and volunteer for things. I have to take care of me...
  • As a wife, a mother of five, foster mother, and finally a parent care giver for in-laws and my own parents, I found it very hard to find time for me. Now that I am older, I can fully recognize the value. Now I have to take better care of me so that I can continue to help others. Too soon old, and too late smart. I suspect that there are many other Sparkers out there raised the same way I was and struggling with this issue. Thank you SparkPeople for making it important.
