You have to be whole mentally, physically and spiritually before your can give to others.
Those whom we are trying to help can’t drink from an empty cup. You are not benefiting those whom depend or come to you or assistance when you are stress, sleep deprive, muscles tight and not able to focus on a single task because you are being pulled in different directions. The word NO or I’m not available is very empowering. It allows you to take control of your personal time and growth.
Proverbs 25:28 Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down without walls. Self-Control + Self-Care = Self Worth.
Take time to set boundaries that not only protect you but, allows you to strengthen yourself mentally and physically. Those that honestly care about your best interest and well-being will understand.
