The more time I spend on healing, the more I realize the importance of self-care. On making the better choices for my own self. Some choices strengthen and others weaken.
Recently I placed myself in a situation that I knew would not be good for me. I did it anyway. Because I could. Because I wanted to. I could feel the strength ebb from me. I was giving my power away.
(Perhaps) fortunately I became ill and had an enforced break. My strength was renewed.
I have been able to stand back and allow myself the power and freedom to make choices for strength. For self-care. For self-love.
