A moments respite

I won't bore you with the details but I'm having some family problems. They've been ongoing for several months. What's strange is that I am sleeping better the last few nights than I have in months. I think it's because I have decided what to do about the problem - nothing. I've done everything I can to help. I've thrown all the money at it that I can without selling all my belongings and moving into the local rescue mission. So, I'm going to let them sink or swim on their own without any more help from me. They are adults. It was a difficult decision but I have to take care of myself. There is no one else who will take care of me. Exercise helps with the frustration and eating cleanly helps with energy. I will continue to take my life one day at a time.

It was hard to admit that there is nothing I can do. I'm used to fixing everything for everyone. Thanks for listening...


  1. so smart to pull yourself away.....obviously it is the right thing to do if you are sleeping!

  2. Sounds like you have developed some healthy habits to deal with stress. I like your plan to take it one day at a time, that's all we can do!

  3. I can definitely sympathize with you on "family issues" - it seems like there's always something going on in my family.

    I hope it gets better soon!
