Self-First Burst

As an empath I can be deeply affected by other people’s energy, expectations, needs and impact. This can lead to over-giving and to taking on other people’s energy and feeling drained.

And so I have learned, sometimes the hard way, over the years how vital it is for my health and well-being for me to look after my own needs first. Self-first does not mean selfish. We have to put on our own oxygen mask first before we can help others.

Self-service

Put yourself into the mix

You’re part of the equation

Don’t have to just solutions fix

You count in this creation

Keep a sense of your self-worth

Check in with how you’re feeling

It’s quite ok to be “self-first”

From here you’re more appealing

Hold yourself, respect you needs

Be not so self-effacing

Self-love more of its power breeds

Are you yourself embracing?
