You've got a lot going on.
Everything is demanding your attention, pulling at you, stretching you too thin.
You're working so hard, but at the end of the day, it feels like you haven't given your full attention to anything.
You're peddling so hard yet you feel like you're going nowhere.
Everyone wants you, all the time, and there's nothing much left to give.
That feeling of being stretched too thin builds up, sometimes. It gets too much.
In those moments, you find yourself yelling.
Using a voice you didn't even know you had.
Saying things you didn't mean to say.
Sometimes it comes out of nowhere. Sometimes you can feel it building up, but you don't know how to stop it.
So many feelings are happening inside of you, that they spill all over your kids.
Afterwards, you feel guilt. But you also don't know what you could have done differently.
You might feel like you can't speak to anyone about this rage that boils over inside you. It might feel like there's too much shame.
You'd rather pretend it never happens.
You bury the feelings deeper. You put on a smile. You hope no-one ever finds out.
If you want to break this cycle, you've landed in the right place.
