Are you Overwhelmed by Responsibilities?May 24, 2021
Do you struggle feeling overwhelmed by all of your responsibilities?
Do you sometimes wonder how to reconcile your passion for riding with all of your family responsibilities?
Do you have guilt for spending time at the barn instead of with your family?
Do you feel rushed at the barn, because you think you should be doing something else?
If you said yes to any of these questions, then read on.
How do we balance social responsibility with personal responsibility?
It always comes back to you.
Let me explain, if you don't reconcile the internal chaos that comes from even the contemplation of your struggle,
How do you think you're going to interact with anyone?
Your horse will feel it, your family will feel it, and certainly, you will feel it.
The first thing that you need to do is to really get familiar with the sensations that arise when you feel stress about a situation.
If you try to distract yourself or ignore it,
you're only pushing it down,
And using energy to hold it at bay.
You feel that everyday as stress.
But if you accept the discomfort as it arises, you will be able to respond from a place of clear thinking and energy.
Not facing our discomfort only leads to reacting out of fear and distress.

Sometimes all you need is the right guidance to begin.
