Featured on LinkedIn: You don’t have to be online 24-7

My parents are in town this week. All the way from Central Maine (where I grew up) to St. Louis, Missouri (where I live now). πŸ₯°

While I have absolutely LOVED having them here (and wish I saw them more often), it has presented some challenges for me.

Things that I've struggled with from the very start of my career ⬇️:

1) How to be unavailable from work.
2) How to be OKAY with being unavailable.

I must admit, setting boundaries isn't easy for me in any settingβ€” personally, professionally, and so on.

It's always been difficult for me to take vacation or personal days from work. To the point where I feel sick or am afraid of being seen as less valuable on the team.

But, no person should have to be ON 24-7. We all require downtime.

When I DO set those work boundaries, I still find it hard to be present with my family, knowing how much work I 𝘴𝘩𝘰𝘢𝘭π˜₯ 𝘣𝘦 getting done and thinking about the potential fires that I 𝘴𝘩𝘰𝘢𝘭π˜₯ 𝘣𝘦 putting out.

Now that I'm my own boss, I find myself struggling even more. My boss can be hard to please. πŸ˜‰

Does anyone else struggle with this? What are your tips to combat the guilt?
