Part of our existence is intertwined in our need to unconditionally love and support those around us. We need each others gifts, passions, time, compassion and even inspiration. Our expression of our gifts gives us purpose in the day in day out routines. Not only is it important for us to be loving toward others, it is important that we love ourselves. Each human life has value, including your own. When people are struggling to love themselves or even make time for their needs and self-care I like to ask “If this were your best friend saying this to you, how would you respond to them?” Sometimes we have to be a little “selfish” in order to be more selfless.
