Taking care of other people can bring us so much joy and contentment even in the worst of circumstances. The problem is though, that sometimes while we are taking care of everyone else, we forget to take care of ourselves.
Looking after others, either our children, elderly or poorly relatives. It can feel overwhelming, add that to other responsibilities like work, school, cooking, cleaning… It can pile on pretty quickly.
However, it is all too easy to burn out. Without even noticing. Maybe you are needing to travel a lot to care homes, hospitals or world renowned residential addiction treatment facilities.
