Maybe it’s not your kids that are exhausting you, after all.

Maybe it’s not your kids that are exhausting you, after all.

Maybe it’s simply that you’re around other humans all day and no alone time to recharge.

Even when those humans are your kids, it’s still exhausting to be “on” all the time.

Let’s get to the root of what’s going on, because I don’t really think it’s your KIDS that you need a break from.

I think you might need a break from:
Human interaction
Keeping up with messes
Feeding people
Stimulation, sound,
Answering questions
Breaking up fights
Responsibility
Being touched

It’s easy to blame our kids for our exhaustion – especially when their energy never seems to run out. But I think it’s time we take responsibility for our own energy.

The way we frame our thoughts matters.

If we choose to blame our kids, our brain has permission to hold resentment.

If we choose to take responsibility, our brain is forced to find the solution.
