Be gentle with all you come into contact with, for you have no idea what kind of burdens they carry. And don’t forget to be gentle with yourself as well. It can be easy to forget that you also carry burdens that others can’t see. It is truly a wonderful thing to be there for someone else, and it is even more awesome to be there for yourself. Being harsh with yourself will eventually wear you down, leaving you with no resources. We have said this before, and it bears repeating. By taking care of yourself, you allow yourself to have the ability to take care of others.
