I took some time for myself. It doesn’t make me a bad mom or a bad friend. I took some time away to refresh my spirit and boost my mood. I need to be uplifted to heights unexplored. Emotionally I felt drained and spiritually I felt lost. I needed time for myself. I needed time to find myself so that I can return to being who everyone needs me to be. Please don’t believe that my world exclusively revolves around you. I need to take care of myself so I can take care of you.
Easily they call me selfish when I finally decide to put myself first, but people don’t realize how selfless I’ve been. I learned long ago that I must make myself a priority and take responsibility for my happiness. I took time for myself because I need to feel like in the midst of all the love and support I provide to those around me, I am still able to love and support myself.
Take time for yourself.
