Show the love to yourself. You are important and your health and happiness depend on your responsibility to take care of yourself. Give yourself permission to take time to assess your needs. Have you even taken the time to know what your needs are? You are an expert at caring for the needs of others but if you have depleted your compassionate deposits it is you who will pay the price within the quality of your life.
Love does heal, love fosters connections and love breeds more love. Giving of yourself when you are running on empty causes resentment and frustration which will manifest one way or another in your health and happiness.
Take little steps each day for YOU. You have to feel your are worth it to give yourself the space to change and to prioritize it in your life.
Create a sacred space just for you. One busy mother of young children used a colored stop sign on her room to teach her children. Red meant do not disturb and green was OK. Significant others need to understand this as well and respect your needs for space. Be gentle and kind to yourself. Keep your promises to yourself and ask for support. YOU ARE WORTH IT.
