Do Not Neglect Your Own Soul
It is okay to say no to requests, to conversations, to outings, to people demanding your attention when life becomes too much to carry. It is okay to take time for yourself. There is nothing wrong with hiding your phone for a day and shutting down your computer and sitting with yourself in quiet. There is no shame in needing time to recharge, giving your soul moments to just sit in silence with it to remind it you still know it is there. There is no crime in deciding that you are your number one priority. Please remember that you need to be healing to be a hand to help others. Whatever healing looks like for you, do not neglect it because you feel you must be there for others. Cater to your soul, listen to your heart, and feed your hungry spirit with love and care.
