I am not sure if you have experienced this, but though I am beginning to physically feel a bit more aligned and healthy, I am still struggling. I was fortunate to be able to work the school-year last year, and this year we moved to another part of town- a new and exciting opportunity for my family! :) Though I am enjoying my family and the new experiences, I am not able to find work... I did finally get called back for an interview, but based on the lack of response I am going to guess that it is not a position I was able to secure.
I am a firm believer that all things happen for a reason, and that work outside my home may not be the path I need to be on right now; however, it still does not lessen the stress that there could be more I could be doing. I still get headaches in the afternoon, but the severity is not as bad as it used to be (though, I guess my comparison is to the headaches I had while I was working), but I still would like to try to work again. I love being able to be there for my husband and children, but I also enjoy the feeling of independence I get from working and earning my own income. I am often overwhelmed by the frustration I feel about not being able to do the latter, and I feel some guilt about even wanting to work outside of my home in the first place.
Do you ever experience this? I know I am not alone in this frustrating struggle.
How do you balance that desire to want to do something you were once so good at, with the different abilities you now have?
I am still trying to figure this out, and it is so frustrating for me.
If you have the answer or some insight, please share.
