Last night I lost it.
I was too tired because I didn’t sleep enough.
I was too hungry because I didn’t eat enough.
I was too sore after an injury because I didn’t rest enough.
I hadn’t done enough.
And so, I wasn’t enough.
I wasn’t patient enough.
I wasn’t understanding enough.
I wasn’t trusting enough.
I lost it.
Tears over nothing.
Tears over everything.
It may have seemed like it came from nowhere but it came from everywhere.
That’s what happens when we don’t give ourselves enough.
And the truth is, when we don’t give ourselves enough, we aren’t able to give anyone else enough.
Don’t forget to focus on doing enough for yourself.
Sometimes that might mean you need to focus on doing less for others.
Find the space between selfishness and selflessness and live there.
Give yourself enough so you can be enough.

Now, more than ever, we all need a little support to help get us through the rough spots. With all the pressures of life, it can be a challenge to find time to not only take care of yourself but also to truly understand who you even are anymore.
