You're probably very busy and only have a couple of minutes to read this, so I'll make it quick.
Not a lot of people try and do the amount that you do.
You've always been involved in just about everything. It's just what you do. You're probably very organized and independent. You are often willing to take on more than your fair share for the good of the cause.
You're an overachiever after all.
Your passion (your metaphorical candle) and will to succeed drive your actions. You work for everything and take nothing for granted.
Those who surround you are constantly asking things of you and you rarely say "no." You often feel like saying "no" to a task or request for help isn't an option. It's your job, duty and responsibility to help those around you.
To such an extent that you often come last on your list of priorities. There isn't enough time in the day to conquer your ever-growing checklist.
This is how you live your life and most of the time you wouldn't trade it for anything.
Yet, some days it feels as if everyone is taking a piece of you.
How much of you is left for you at the end of the day?
You feel selfish taking the time for yourself.
After all, there is so much more you could be doing with your time.
As much as I, the overextended girl, disagree with this, you should take this advice:
take a break.
I know it is the last thing you want to do. You have so much you want to accomplish in so little time. Taking a break seems like an impossible task.
However, if you don't, your candle just may burn out.
Save a little bit of you for you.
