Are you doing too much?

Updated: Apr 6, 2023

Are you doing too much... for everyone else?

Are you the one they go to so things get done at work and/or for volunteer commitments?

Are you in charge of everything (or almost everything) in your home?

How do we get ourselves in these situations?

It could be that you are a people pleaser. Maybe this is the way you have always been. Perhaps this was how you handled things when you were growing up or you saw one of your parents do it this way. It could also be that you are really good at knowing what needs to get done or being organized. The biggest thing though - is boundaries. Stronger boundaries (or just basic boundaries) are so important here. Especially if you are in a situation where you find yourself frustrated because you feel like you aren't appreciated for all you do.

If that's you, here are some basic questions you can ask yourself:

  • Am I the only person who can do this? Does anyone else know how to do this? If not, can I teach them?

  • Is there a system that would work - that we all could use - so it's not only on me?

  • What am I most frustrated about? What do I do that no one notices? Do I need to do it? Does anyone need to do it?

  • Am I comfortable speaking up about this? What is the worst that can happen if I say something? How can I say something about this in a way that I feel good about?

Would love to hear from you - is there something that you can let go of?
