We often think of self care as making time for relaxing activities like a massage, a long soak in the tub, or taking time to write in a journal.
But sometimes self care means saying no.
Not fulfilling other people’s requests isn’t selfish or rude.
It simply means you are prioritizing your most precious resources – your time and energy – rather than depleting them for the sake of making someone else happy.
The saying is true that you can’t fill someone else’s cup if yours is empty.
You get to decide how to fill your own cup. 💜
