Living Within Boundaries
"Don't do this."
"I can't stand it anymore, I MUST clean my bathroom."
"You don't have enough energy."
"I don't care. I WANT a clean bathroom."
"You know what happens when you push too hard.
"You WILL make yourself worse!"
"I DON'T CARE! I'm sick of this!!"
You can replace cleaning the bathroom with any activity that causes you to push past reason.

Wonder Woman to the Rescue
Stop disrespecting yourself!
But you don't understand, I HAVE NO CHOICE!
I should have known better
How the Heck do I Stop Being Me?
Learn from the Masters
I find it easier to learn something when I have an example to follow. I don't know of any better example on how to relax than by watching my cats sleep... for hours.
So snuggle up with a furry friend, break out the bubble bath, relax with a good book, or maybe even listen to your relaxation CDs. Let's all take a collective deep breath and learn to be OK with taking care of ourselves.
