It’s time to trust yourself. It’s ok to focus on yourself, to care for yourself, for your mind, your body and your spirit. It’s ok to give yourself permission. It’s not vanity, but rather a genuine act of caring for something that matters…you. The more dignity you treat yourself with, the more dignity you will express in the treatment of others. To put others before oneself is noble, but when done for the sake of looking good, harms the self. Nurture yourself so that the care you offer to others is an authentic expression of your being. It’s time to offer yourself gentleness, dignity, and compassion.
