How do you keep yourself motivated when your family unmotivates you?
When it comes to getting stuff done around the house, errand, bills, groc. and so on. My husband notices nothing it seems and of course the kids don't. (I don't expect the kids to but a grown man, my husband should) Even knowing this I can keep going but my husband tends to say or do something that really hits a sore spot. It brings me down, makes me feel unmotivated all over again and I just want to let everything go and let them all live in thier own filth. Problem is I live with them too and the house being in chaos all the time makes me uncomfortable, uneasy, more stressed even. Kind of like I don't have it together kind of feeling. Not to mention, the gripes you get when no one has clothes, clean towels or food in the house. They don't notice the million things (all those many, little tedious things that pile up) you do but they sure notice when you don't do them. I was just on here trying to find some motivation and encouragement to keep going and dh comes and acts like a you know what. Now I'm back to feeling discouraged and unmotivated. I know I can choose how I feel and to decide to stay motivated but I'm getting so tired of feeling taken for granted which is exactly what he managed to do AGAIN. Does anyone else deal with this? If so how do you let it not bother you and stay motivated anyway? Talking to him about the things he's doing would probably only lead to him telling me I'm over reacting and that at least I don't have to go to work everyday. That I shouldn't expect him to do anything after he's been working all day while I'm at home. It don't seem to dawn on him that when he gets home and kicks his feet up or sits in his "man cave" for hours on end that I am out here steady going. I don't ask him to help out with house stuff because I do feel I'm home all day so this is my part. This is my job so to speak. The only time I get my panties in a wad is when he trys to act like I've been doing nothing. I honestly feel like he gets more of a break than I do and he's the one working outside the home. Ok, this post is going on too long and I'm getting carried away. Sorry. just frustrated. Don't know how to make my husband see that he's making me feel terrible.
