When problems arise, are you the first jump in to help even though you might be ridiculously busy yourself? Sometimes we don’t address our own needs before helping others leading to high levels of stress and discontent. Self care affirmations can help you to realize that you need to take care of your own needs before you can be there fully to take care of others.
