Allow yourself comfort and joy

Care for Others Without Resentment
by Jane Powell

“Allow yourself comfort and joy.”

Think about everything you’ve done for other people this week; the ways you brought comfort and joy to partners, children, parents and friends. Now think about the things you did for yourself. Chances are, there’s a big imbalance, right?

As women, we need to remember to nurture our own emotional needs and make our well being a priority. Give yourself permission to feel tired or sad. Comfort yourself with a leisurely bath or an early night with a great book. Stay connected with others and seek joy through a lunch with friends. Why not treat yourself to a bouquet of your favorite flowers? There are so many things you can do.

It’s important that you comfort yourself so you have the energy to take care of others without resentment. Through this you feel comfort and joy!
