Sometimes you gotta take a day off.
When you’re in the position where you are caring for others at work or in your family, there inevitably comes a time when it all gets too much. After a certain point, it becomes unproductive to keep giving. We can’t give what we don’t have, and if your life’s work is to love others, then you must make it a priority to let yourself be loved.
If you read the title of this post and resonated with it, give it a shot. Do what it takes. You might have to make some hard choices, but it’s worth it. Find the thing that fills you up and take your rough day as an opportunity to take a step back and refuel. Go for a run, read a book, take a nap. The demands of your life will still be there tomorrow; let this moment be for you.
