Our topic is perfectly timed for the holiday season (Nov 26 is American Thanksgiving). Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or Diwali; if you are an over-giver then any time may be a time of over-doing! Do you want to break the cycle of over-giving and overwhelming yourself? Join us as we challenge this old habit.
Do you chronically over-give and then feel resentful, frustrated and exhausted? If you answered yes, then our topic will give you a chance to reflect on how and why this happens. Even better, we will discuss ways to challenge this tendency, and provide tools to help you navigate life demands without burning out.
I also have to be careful with over-giving and over-doing. I juggle a lot of balls and sometimes, instead of asking for help, I just do the task. I know I need to share the demands but sometimes it just seems easier to do the task myself. This is especially true if I don’t want to bother someone else who is also busy. This tendency is quite common and it is worth having the conversation with someone completely immersed in this question like our guest Christine Arylo.
