Happy Sunday, my loves 💜🖤💜 I hope you had a relaxing weekend. You work too hard not to enjoy life.
I read this quote earlier this morning, and it’s stuck with me all day. “You should not have to rip yourself into pieces to keep others whole.”
What does that mean? Well, to me, it means to stop trying to accommodate everyone else when you know you need to take care of yourself first.
I’m a reformed people-pleaser. For too long, I would go out of my way to make everyone else happy. I would leave my own needs off to the sideline and end up burnt out or sad in the process.
We’ve talked about this before, I think. People will use you and ask you to do superhuman things if you let them. Sometimes they want you to expend your emotional energy to fix them without thinking of the effects on you.
So do the things you want because it makes you happy, not because they’ve guilted you into doing so. It’s perfectly ok to practice the art of no.
Your mental wealth and wellness are so important, don’t forget that.
You are SPECIAL You are IMPORTANT You are WORTHY
Have a beautiful new week, and never let them take your shine because you shine so damn bright. Take care 💜✌🏽
