Being Enough For Yourself

I have come to realize that if you are always there for others, your heart is rare. Everyone concentrates on themselves that we forget about those around us. Know that you give people hope and faith in a new tomorrow. Know that you make people feel wanted, that you help people be seen when they think they’re invisible. Know that you make others feel as though they have a purpose in life. 

Here comes the shocker

Remind yourself that you are not invincible. Your heart and soul need rest. You need rest. Remind yourself that you do not have to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. That you may not be able to heal and save everyone around you and knowing that it is OK.  

Remind yourself that you deserve to put as much energy as you give to others and the world into yourself. Invest in yourself when it is needed. That you are worthy of the love you give to others. Remind yourself that you don’t always have to be strong, that you don’t always have to be the fixer. You can be a human and ask for help. You can take a break and take your cape off, take a step back, and nourish the softness instead of you. 

Be enough for yourself even have to save yourself first.
