How Setting Boundaries is Like an Oxygen Mask on an Airplane

Have you ever felt the struggle or the inner battle regarding meeting your own needs while also feeling a responsibility or tug to take care of another's need?

I have. It creates an inner war with myself. How so? Well, when I choose to care for someone else's need over my own, I feel a sense of self-betrayal for not taking care of myself. Self care and setting boundaries are much like an oxygen mask on a plane. You need to put on your oxygen mask first - then help others.

Same here. Set your boundaries and honor yourself. Allow others to care for themselves. Enjoy the inner peace that follows from being in integrity with yourself.
