I grieved today for the times I have loved so much that I forgot about myself and my own needs. I grieved today for giving so much and forgetting that I should keep a little bit back just for me. I grieved today for getting so caught up in helping others that I overlooked I needed a little help as well. I grieved today for thinking I could just do it all, denying that I also have my limits. And sometimes having limitations is a holy thing. I just wanna love people in a way that makes me feel loved too. I don’t want to forget myself anymore.

    What a great post… It’s true most helpers will jump right in when a call is heard, sometimes to our own detriment. We put ourselves aside, thinking it’s for the greater good… When in fact it could be a learning opportunity. Can you say No? Not this time? I don’t have it in me right now? Can you help me? That’s the biggest one for helpers… Asking for help themselves… thank you for the reminder! Love & light… 🙂

    It’s okay to be selfish at times, meaning self-care is just as important as taking care of your loved ones. I realized I can’t keep driving myself crazy trying to please everyone and make everybody happy. That’s virtually impossible. The biggest lesson I learned is…be always kind to yourself because people will not always appreciate your efforts or notice that you do so much for them. Sometimes, people will take us for granted and keep wanting, expecting, demanding, etc…because we don’t know how to draw boundaries. We don’t know how to say no or how to treat ourselves better because we feel like we have to be perfect and please everyone before we please ourselves. Maybe, they won’t like us anymore, maybe we will lose friends, maybe we will feel like we have no value if we don’t keep doing things for others…that’s okay!!! Because the only relationship that you really need is the one you have with yourself. I believe if you treat yourself better, others will treat you better as well. It really sucks to be under-appreciated & under-valued, but if that is how you treat yourself, than who will value & appreciate you??? Its okay to appreciate yourself, be kind to yourself, love yourself, put your needs first, know how much you can handle…Always be good to yourself!!!
