Women often tend to give a lot. Sometimes we give way more than we even have to give. But when you are passionate about helping and healing others, you often put your own needs aside. After all, you are the healer, you will just take care of yourself a little later. Surely, a few hours won’t make that much of a difference…
That’s right! A few hours won’t make much of a difference. The problem with that kind of thinking is that the few hours can quickly turn into days, weeks and months. After which, the small thing that needed to be taken care of has now grown exponentially and the time it would have taken to deal with it some moons ago has now multiplied. Too often, at that point, it can no longer wait and suddenly it needs to take priority over everything else.
Guilty! I neglected and my body, my mind and my whole being screamed at me: “Enough is enough!”. I found myself with sharp stabbing back pain, my head in the wrong space, my patience thinning and my desire to escape sky rocketing. So, I did what any woman with a fraction of leftover sanity would do. I put everything I could on hold and I took care of healing the healer. Two weeks of physical therapy, energy healing and meditation later, I feel like myself again. Most importantly, I feel like I can get back to giving, helping and healing others.
The lesson I learned – and I hope that you can take my word for it and not go through the experience yourself: Always put yourself first! You cannot do anything for anyone if you are not doing okay.
