Why is that such a bad word? Why is it lazy or selfish or whatever? Why? Makes no sense to me. It is not until we can take care of ourselves that we can take care of another; any other….family or stranger. It’s hard as fuck to take care of others while we ourselves are depleted. Talk about a bent over vase (see Made for More on Prime for reference if curious).
And I don’t mean self-soothe through drugs and alcohol although even animals are known to take plants, herbs and hallucinogenics; mostly medicinally though. Lol
I wish it was taught and appreciated here more….as a humanity.
We must learn and lead by example.
I’m going to do it.
And effective immediately I’m tithing 10% of my gross earnings to the charity of my choice and no I don’t mean a stripper or a video poker game. Ugghhh. Lol. Didn’t I say I was going to do this and I think I did feed the homeless for a bit using that 10% and I do give randomly, but it isn’t consistent. I want it to be more purposeful.
It feels so good to take care of myself. Isn’t that how I’m able to even help others to begin with? No? Or at least that’s the intention and we know how much I love intention.
Self healing promotes world healing. Once you learn to love, forgive and honor yourself shouldn’t it come easier to love, forgive and honor all others? I’m supposing here. Makes sense to me at least.
