As caring and supportive practitioners much of our time and energy is used to promote the health of others. I often think about what the limit is as to how much energy can be given to others while still being able to care for the self. In fact, over the last year I learned that often my own energy was so widely spread to support others and maintain social connections that I forgot about my self.
My learnings have taught me that it is okay to be selfish. In fact, without moments of selfishness I am unable to care for others. Making myself, my health, the priority in my life has benefited so many aspects of others. The techniques I use are widespread, often routined, and yet varies based on my needs.
If I, or another, was to encourage you to be selfish what would you do? What would a selfishness look like for you?
