Guilt/Alone Time


I wanted to drive up here alone and several people asked if they could drive up here with me. I can't tell you how hard it was just to come by myself.

Often we feel guilty when we do something for ourselves. We have so accepted the mandate to be aware of others' feelings, take care of them, and put ourselves last that we often feel uncomfortable if we even have needs. How selfish it seems to refuse a ride to someone who needs it when we are going that way anyway. Surely we could put ourselves out a Little. Even if we do refuse the request and get our time alone, are we going to be so overcome with guilt that we won't enjoy the time anyway? What a lose-lose situation!
Maybe we can use that time alone to explore our gift of guilt and learn from it. Even having time to explore our guilt requires alone time. We may need that exploration desperately.

When I say no to a request for my time, I am not going away from that person, I am going to myself.

I love reading this book "Meditations for women who do too much" by Anne Wilson schaef. Everyday there is a quote worth passing on but sometimes I'm just too busy taking time for me to post everyday.

No road is traveled alone, just know your journey is a shared one.
