It can seem a lot on your shoulders.
It can be exhausting.
And what happens when you crumble?
I have eight children and some days I feel tired and worn out. But I know that I am lucky because my husband is there to take the reins when I’ve had enough and we take strength from each other.
But if you are the only one in your family who is the pillar of strength and you have nobody to share that with, it can seem too much at times.
That’s why it’s important that you know that you don’t have to be strong all the time.
We’re all human, and if you need a rest, that’s okay.
Sometimes we also need to ask for help, and that’s okay.
If you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t be strong for anyone else.
