Feelings of Over-Responsibility

Have you ever been in a situation where you feel guilty for not being able to do more, and you get blamed or feel at fault for not changing the situation? Or you feel like it’s your birthright… or even your OBLIGATION to make everything okay?

If you are nodding your head, then I know this episode will resonate with you. There are so many things that are beyond our control, and taking responsibility for more than the things that are yours to carry is not healthy for you and the people you want to serve. In this episode, I will share the feelings of over-responsibility and how it has affected my personal life and my business. I talk about how over-responsibility can show up in your life and my invitation for you if you feel like you are in this situation.

You need to break free from over-responsibility and live your best life. And it can start now.

“Over-responsibility is when you start to believe that the things that are happening to the people around you or your family are somehow your fault or that you have to be the one who needs to do the things to change the situation.”
