Selfcare is not selfish. Give yourself permission to place the oxygen mask over your own face first, now breath. Inhale. Exhale. It takes a ton of commendable courage to reach out for a shoulder to lean on. It is perfectly ok to recognize when you are operating on empty. You cannot pour from an empty cup. It is perfectly ok to receive, especially when you are the one who is constantly sacrificing and giving. It is time for you to pour back into yourself. Human beings are not designed to be an island. Give yourself the gift of healing and recovery. I will meet you where you are and help you along your healing and recovery journey.
