Making alone time a priority for me makes me so guilty!
I have been used to the role of nurturer, mother, wife, house slave, that thinking of myself first makes me seem selfish.
Like any mom – or woman, for that matter – I feel like I am neglecting everybody if I think of myself first.
I have to get myself off the idea that it is selfish to take care of myself because it prevents me from being my best. A lot of times, I think that giving myself my “me” time is a luxury I can’t afford.
But then, I figured out that I can’t give away what I don’t have.
Without a peaceful, well-rested, loving, caring spirit, I am in no position to be nurturing my family and friends.
Having my “me” time will send me back to my friends and family calmer, happier and nicer.
