After my aunt and uncle died I was very concerned for my mother and I focused most of my energy on making sure she was ok. And then I focused my energy on making sure things were ok at work. I never really took any time to ensure that I was ok. Because while my mother lost her brother and sister I neglected to take into account that I had lost my aunt and uncle. And while I felt guilty for taking unscheduled time off from work they should be considerate of my feelings and my pain. And so I reached a point where I just had to take some time for myself – no work, no family, just a day for me. I plan to make a habit of it.
