tired...

I'm not depressed. but simply feeling very tired, very drained. I seem to be 'working' so hard day in day out, just trying to meet everybody's expectations of me. and yet it's like I'm never even close to meeting them. Funny thing is, I've never had any problems meeting, or even exceeding, expectations when at work. Yet I cant seem to fulfill my duties as a daughter, a wife, a sister and a mother.....

and now it seems like even my kids' hv their own expectations of me! I'm really very tired.

妹妹,人的情绪难免有低落的时候。时常总是要自己达到别人心目中的理想角色,是很辛苦的。只要把心胸打开,别对每件事情要求的太多,日子就会比较好过。我也曾伤心难过失意,但凡事以另一个乐观的角度去看待,生活会更快乐的。

We are only human. We can't be perfect. What's more you are dealing with other human and we human are complicated creature. Don't be too hard on yourself as long as you are doing your best. Cheers!

As long as you can tell yourself at the end of each day "I have performed my duties well." Then, it's enough. We will never be able to please everyone, it's impossible....
Stay happy, as long as mum is happy, everyone will be happy.
