SEGMENT:

Today’s guest, Rob Gorski, is the proud dad of three amazing children on the autism spectrum. He began a blog in 2010 as a means of coping with everything that was going on – the raw emotions, true happiness and heartbreak. He’s brutally honest, which I absolutely love. His mission to show others of similar circumstance that they are not alone is definitely something that I can connect with, as most of us would agree. We want to make a difference. We want the best for our children. We want the whole world to know just how much compassion we have for the autism community. It can be exhausting though…leaving us questioning how to take care of ourselves, too. What does self-care look like, and what can we do about it? Please welcome, my friend Rob Gorski.

CONCLUSION:

We all experience exhaustion, feelings of being defeated, not good enough. That’s why self-care is so important. Those who have experienced compassion fatigue describe it as being sucked into a downward spiral, not knowing how to stop it, so they do what they’ve always done…continue to give and give and give until they’re completely tapped out. Our families need us to be playing our A-game. We need to take time to fully recharge. I’m making a commitment to everyone here to take better care of myself, so that I can be even better for my son. I challenge you to do the same. It’s not selfish to take care of ourselves. It is needed. I expect everyone here to hold me accountable, and I’ll be here rooting for you. Thank you so much for being a part of My Autism Tribe. I’ll see ya next week!
