The Magic of Self-care and Forgiveness You have heard the safety announcement on airplane before right? I was a flight attendant for many years and repeated the announcement multiple times in a day not realizing it was a personal message to my internal people pleaser… “when the oxygen masks drop, If you are traveling with someone who needs assistant, put the mask on yourself first”. If you don’t have a steady flow of oxygen, there is no way that you can be of help to anyone else around you. So how does this apply in life? If you are not taking care of yourself, honoring what you are feeling, and meeting your own needs then resentment, exhaustion and complacency will kick in.
