When I get angry

Periodically I find myself getting short tempered and impatient. When this happens, I ask myself: what do I need?. For me as a primary care giver, I spend most of my time taking care of the needs of others. Sometimes things get out of balance and I begin to feel like there’s no time for me and I begin to resent this. This diesn’t mean I’m a bad parent. It means I am out of balance. When my needs are met, I am better able to deal with the needs of others.. what’s more it’s my job to determine what I need and how to meet them. The best way to teach my kids sel-care is to practice self-care. This also leads to respect on their part because I’m not saying one thing and doing another.
So what do I want?
