You are #1 !!!!!
I just heard another heartbreaking story of a woman #Relapsing , back to self-medicating with alcohol; for years family told her to “get sober for your kids!” Guilt of being a “bad mother “ and the fear of being judged as less than weighed heavily. After relapsing. family berated :“you love booze more than your kids!” Ouch! I remember the guilt, hurt, confusion and self-loathing I felt, years back, when “loved ones” hurled these thoughts at me.😓. Lots time & patience from dedicated health professionals taught me “#healthyselfishness , #whatselfcarelookslike #iamworthy . What a concept😀! Learning to love my self, first, priority#1 , will let me then learn how to love others!? Sign me up!
