“It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.”
John Joseph Powell, The Secret of Staying in Love
We wonder whether we may have sacrificed too much of ourselves for the approval of others. August was all about self-approval, self-worth, and self-esteem…but did we dwell too much on these areas and forget our authentic self? We must reclaim our authentic self in order to follow through and progress on the intensity of our current purposes and intentions.
When we are not true to ourselves, we are disrespecting all the work and effort we put into our well-being. In doing so, we rapidly deplete our resources and our support systems become unstable and dangerous to rely on. We must scrutinize our every move and thought to be certain that we are acting in our own best interests in healthy, non-toxic ways.
Many people are taught and indoctrinated from childhood forward to please others through service. In that way, we learn to please our bosses, our colleagues, our friends, and our families. We must un-learn that expectation when it infringes upon our own self-care. There is a reason that airlines instruct adults to put their own oxygen mask on first in the event of an emergency, before helping someone else. If our needs are not met first, then we are unable to meet the needs of others. Self-care is not selfishness. It’s a crucial part of living and serving others in a healthy, non-toxic way.
