"The Sun will rise and set regardless. What we choose to do with the light while it's here is up to us. Journey wisely."

Ideas

1

Self care isn't just about yourself.
It's also about how far-reaching being cared for internally is to our external communities.

The better you look after yourself, the better you can look after others.

If you don't fill your tank with self care, you'll eventually end up with nothing to give to others.

2

By learning to raise others, whether as a parent or mentor, you learn to better raise yourself.
We don't ever stop raising ourselves, or parenting ourselves. And the better and more you do that for others, the better you can do this for yourself.

You can't seeing other people genuinely until you to forgive yourself.
We need to look at ourselves and still say "I love you anyway", in order to open up the door of compassion towards other people.

You can't love yourself, you learn to love yourself first.
