I don't care how many times you've read it online - I'm going to write it again. It is so important as a human being to take time to yourself. Be alone and in silence.
Even if it's for five minutes, you have to do it. I know when it has been awhile since I've had alone time as my anxiety levels are through the roof. I cannot cope with day to day life. I'm not the parent I want to be and know I am. I'm a shit wife. A crappy friend. All because I haven't looked after myself.
There are endless quotes that point this out. "You can't pour from an empty cup" is a simple one we should all understand. Fill your cup. I don't care if it's with water, coffee or wine. It's after this when you can then share out the contents.
Love yourself and you will know how to love other people. Take this as a reminder. Give yourself some love today. Please.
