It’s been a quiet month of January for me. It made me anxious that I had not posted. I felt compelled to force communication and every time I came here to post, it felt unauthentic, so I chose silence.
And in that silence I remained true to myself.
Often we do things not because we want to but because we feel we should. At times sacrificing to the point where we have nothing left, not even for ourselves.
Does this sound familiar? Giving from a place which others do not replenish, leaving it empty?
It is a wonderful thing to be caring. To want to help others, but not if it diminishes you.
That way lies bitterness.
Im not exempt from the lesson. It took me a while to get it. I have an innate need to help but in my quest for discernment I am learning the difference between helping and enabling.
I am now no longer willing to drown for others to float, and neither should you.
You are worthy of being holistically well.
