Why did I continue in both my marriage and my work when I knew it was wrong for me? Maybe you can relate…
I thought I was doing what I “should” do… And what was expected of me. I believed that if I just tried harder, I could make it work. Be happy in my marriage and find that work/life balance that I was seeking.
Staying in a relationship, a job, or remaining in a state of being stuck, unclear of your next steps or what your purpose is, what your doing with your life…can be confusing and overwhelming…enough to push aside, until things get out of hand.
That’s what happened to me.
The emotional stress and burnout caused by too much work and the intense stress I was under because of the constant struggle in my marriage— turned physical. The hand and wrist pain that I’d been nursing for years, forced me to change my career to one where I didn’t rely on the type of detailed handwork I had been doing in both my design business and fine art career.
