Pieces of Self Care

We are complicated beings.  If you have faith in God, you have one less stressor than most, and it’s a great comfort when in pain; emotional or physical.

However, it’s important we know when to care for ourselves, by letting others know — hey we need a break, or a nap, or I just require an hour to read.

Other human beings generally can’t read our minds, so if we don’t ask for what we need, they simply will not know.

Be kind to yourself.  Do some deep breathing, stretch, nap, read a book, decompress.

James 2:8 Yes indeed, it is good when you truly obey our Lord’s command, “You must love and help your neighbors just as much as you love and take care of yourself.”
