My guess is, you don’t want to feel the way you do, but you don’t know how and what to do. You are only human, and caregiving is a humongous task to take on, for anyone…
When events happen in our lives, our brains offer us different thoughts about those circumstances. It is up to us to choose which thoughts we believe and which ones we don’t believe.
Those thoughts that we choose either cause us emotional pain or freedom and empowerment. Take a moment, how do you feel when you believe a thought like your needs don’t matter? My guess is when you don’t show up as the best caregiver or spouse you want to be.
It can be a good skill to question your brain about certain thoughts. Yes brain, I think that at this point, my emotional needs don’t matter, but from what we know, each of us is responsible for our own emotions. So if my needs don’t matter, it is because I am not taking care of my own needs.
