Every day is an adventure of juggling your business, household chores and kids’ school stuff. The hurdles may seem endless at times.

And that’s only touching on two roles you have.

There’s also the carousel that comes with being a partner and a friend and a few other roles that I shall not name because we’re both starting to feel overwhelmed by this long, exhausting sentence.

Know this: your struggles are valid.

Whether it’s the guilt of missing your kid’s cricket game, skipping a client lunch meeting or just being too damn tired for candlelit sexy time, your feelings and experiences are real.

Never let anyone dismiss your struggles or make you feel that what you’re dealing with is insignificant.

Acknowledging these struggles is a step towards finding solutions, creating balance, and practising self-care.
