So many of us women feel that by putting ourselves first, we are being selfish. We think that by giving to others before we give to ourselves we are acting selflessly.
The problem comes, however, when we give without replenishment. Our giving comes at our own expense leaving us emotional and depleted. This then becomes a selfish space because we are no longer strong enough to carry our own load. We rely on others to fulfil our lack.
Which one is more selfish? Giving to the point of depletion and then relying on others to fill you up again? Or, filling up your own cup first and then giving from that space of abundance?
