I’ve been experiencing a sense of overwhelm, Fred, anger and ultimately at times not a whole lot of room for myself and the things that bring me joy. In my role as a early childhood educator, I’m constantly giving to the children, the families, committees, colleagues and that in conjunction with all the prep for instruction, conferences, etc. At 33 I don’t feel like I should be this tired, feel this overwhelmed. To keep up with the workload I’m constantly working outside of my co tract hours, and at times even mandatory, if I’m in charge of coordinating something for a committee and something has gone wrong/ weather shifts following days schedule. It must be taken care of. I’m a hard worker and have always been and this is too much for me. I feel my soul crumbling and frustration and resentment growing. I don’t won’t to subscribe to this grind culture.
