- Wedding: April 2014
I’ve been to the boards before but never posted. I thought now is probably appropriate because I’m really unable to communicate this with people around me. My job has been going through some craziness lately and I think that is the root of the problem. Basically we’ve had layoffs and there has been a LOT of changes in our roles and the people still there (like me) have been swamped. I know some people have the luxury to do some wedding planning during work, but I’ve had very little opportunity for that. I come home pretty late and that’s the only time I get. But I’m REALLY struggling to keep my life together.
I’ve become very irritable at work and in life. Socially I get so frustrated when I get emails from people asking to hang out because I feel like I have no other time to get stuff done. The wedding I’m planning is kind of a daunting one because my family is on a small budget and even though we’re getting help from my FI’s family we have to accommodate everyone’s wishes and with ethnic weddings this is the BIGGEST problem. The wedding is about everyone BUT the bride and groom. I tried to push for a small simple wedding and that was flat out rejected. I have some help but really I’m doing 90% of the work. Delegating has been nothing short of difficult too.
All in all I feel like the world is caving in on me with work being so terrible, wedding planning being such a huge ordeal and the social thing… feels like added pressure to pretend like I can handle it all.
Anyone else feel this way?
