Our expert says:
Review all the time you spend on church activities. Truly religious activity can be refreshing and sustaining, but where a church demands too much in time and activity, it becomes wearying, in a way that is of no benefit to anyone else. Your spiritual life would probebly benefit from having more time to feel rested and pray on your own, in peace, rather than in being organized.
And your husband must recognize that you both work, and both get tired, and that he must share the chores of running the house and caring for the kids, equally with you. Don't invite people over until you feel restd enough to enjoy their company --- that is a luxury, not a necessity.
You sem to think of your responsibilities towads our kids like a Life Sentence --- why not be glad for them to sleep at Gran's occasionally, if they and Gran like it ? The kids need QUALITY time with you --- having more time with a frazzled and stress-out mom is of little value, compared with less time with a rested and happy mom.
Talking about one's problem is indeed useful, IF one does it with someone like a counsellor who can ensure that the talking is useful and productive.
Consider --- seieng a personal counsellor to help you find better ways to cope with those aspects of the situation that can't be changed right now, and better ways to change those that can and should be changed. Take your time and look for a better and more congenial job, and meanwhile, let some of the office stresses flow over you, knowing that they need not be permanent..
