I’m at our vacation home. It’s hard to get away from my business and my two young kids but my husband said it was really important to him. He invited a new business partner and his girlfriend. I have a history of social anxiety so spending a week living with a couple I don’t know is a lot for me. But on top of it I’m believing that since I’m away from the kids and the business this has to be a break for me. It should be fun and relaxing. While I’m aware of this being a thought it still is making the anxiety worse. I’m angry that everyone seems to be having a great time and I’m not. And I feel resentful that I’m going through this and then when I come home I am expected to be refreshed and ready to get back to work and the kids. But inside if this continues I’ll come home depleted. I know that step one is letting go of the shoulds. I will carry the anxiety with me “like a handbag” but that’s not very relaxing and enjoyable. I don’t want to be ok with this being stressful for me the whole “relaxing” trip. Is there still a way that I could enjoy this? A better way to think about it.?
