If you’re the person who is always there for others,
Know that your heart is rare.
Know that you give people hope.
Know that you make people feel wanted.
Know that you make people feel seen.
Know that you make people feel like they have a purpose.
However, also remind yourself that you are not invincible.
Your heart needs rest.
You need rest.
That you do not need to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders.
That you may not be able to save everyone.
That you may not be able to heal every hurt.
That you deserve to take all of the energy you put out into the world and invest it back into yourself from time to time.
That you are worthy of the love you keep giving to everyone else.
That you don’t always have to be strong.
That you don’t always have to be the fixer.
You can be human.
You can ask for help.
Remind yourself that you can take a break & you can take a step back to nourish the softness inside of you.
