Hi I'm Trish! 👋
Back to Blog
As much as you are a #GIVER who always puts others first, you won’t be able to be there for others when your own cup is DEPLETED.
When your cup is dry, that’s called #exhaustion, #dissatisfaction, and depression.
I do get it, not only are we worried that some people might peg us as “#selfish” if we put ourselves first at times, but also, it is so HARD to know when to give and when to take 🤷🏻♀️
This is a predicament which truth be told, there are NO hard and fast rules to follow. Each situation has to be assessed individually.
Here are some self-reflective questions to help you with your decision making:
1💡Before saying “YES” or giving, ask yourself if you are being #kind and fair to yourself.
Don’t just do it just because you feel you are a bad human being if you don’t say YES or give when asked.
2💡Ask yourself: Do you always say “NO” to this person every time they ask you for help or invite you for something? Or are there times where you DO give to this person?
Heard this before? You probably have, but it really is quite hard to practice it, don’t you think?
“Taking” is oddly associated with so many negative connotations. That is why we find it hard to…
#TAKEtime for ourselves.
ACCEPT help from others.
Imagine this, what if you TOOK the time for yourself to #rejuvenate so that you’ll be energized to GIVE to others?
What if you ACCEPTED help to improve your circumstances, so that you’ll be able to #GIVEBACK to others in the future?
An empty lantern provides no light. Self-care is the fuel that allows your light to shine brightly.
