Healing demands energy. To sustain my energy I will remember that in my loving of and giving to others, I must keep a little for myself. It's good to give but not so much that I am emptied. The healthy balance between giving and keeping is important for my recovery.
Today, I can give to others and I can also be my caretaker.
I will not feel guilty for loving and giving to myself, as this is the energy needed for recovery.
-Brenda Nixon

Fond as we are of our loved ones, there comes at times during their absence an unexplainable peace.

This is a tough one for me. I'm going to the salon today (haven't been in 3 months) and am actually feeling guilty about it

That I totally understand. I keep telling myself to go have a 'spoil me' day, and I know it's ok to do that, but when it actually comes to getting in the truck and going.... I suddenly have a thousand other things to do at that exact moment, and none of them involve taking care of me
