One of the toughest dichotomies for me is the tension between serving others and taking care of myself.
It's way too easy to end up in one direction or the other and then follow-up with an overcorrection too far the other way.
I'm either way too far inside my own head dealing with my own shit to recognize you,
or I'm way too distracted making sure everyone else is good and I forget to eat lunch.
The truth is that you can't serve anyone if you haven't taken care of yourself first.
But in order to truly serve people you have to be empathetic and available.
Thus the conflict.
This balance is not intuitive for any of us - it's learned.
So how will we create the proper boundaries in order to execute what's necessary?
