    This was a great word to read and take in. I had found myself recently thinking the extreme of “Am I the right mom for my child? Do I need to look at adoption? There is no connecting, what am I doing wrong.” But, perspective, admitting I’m running on fumes, and breaking down my false sense of mom pride is a great start to where and what I need to do about being burned out. Thank you for you candid, open post about something not often shared. Words shared to all and not even knowing who will need them. Thank you.

    Sometimes I too feel the same way. Just like walking on a road that has no end. I can relate my thoughts with this post.

    Wow, thank you so much for this! This is something I have been repeating to my husband lately, the feeling of running on empty, and I appreciate the conviction you gave me through this post. Knowing it’s not a badge, it’s not a positive, it’s not something to strive for are all things I needed reminding of. Sometimes I feel empty, but have no idea what to do with that knowing. Tonight, I’m taking your advice and doing something for myself!

    Thank you for this. I keep repeating that line to myself, ” You are worth more than running on empty.” It’s how I feel, and yet to do something for myself is so foreign. I am almost afraid. Thank you for this.
