Today I decided to put myself first. My life, up until very recently, has been marked by service for family and if there is anything left of me, my time, my energy– then that is what I reserved for myself. It took today for me to very shakily decide that if I’m to ever succeed the way that I want to succeed I need to have some boundaries. I need to stop trying save everyone. I need to let them be their own heroes.
