I am doing all the chores, how do I get help?
Updated: Aug 2, 2022
If you are in a relationship where there is a mutual understanding of splitting household chores, then you should be okay. However, if you feel you are drowning while your partner is finding their serenity and balance, and the splitting of chores is uneven, then you may need to take the time, through well-versed conversations to ensure that your partner understands how you feel, and how they can help you.
Sometimes it is not because the partner does not care. It is rather that they just don’t know it. I once heard someone suggest “but you do it, why should I?", this is a great platform to start the conversation about what you need from your partner and your children.
