We have an amazing ability to allow ourselves to assume burdens and carry the weight that others have assigned to us.

Many of us exist for years attempting to sate the needs of others while disregarding the little voices in our heads that are reaching out for attention or for care.

Consider the importance of self-care and mindfulness. We cannot be good for other people if we are not good for ourselves.

Therefore we do not have the RIGHT to assume the burdens of others. Instead, we have the OBLIGATION to recognize our own needs and live a happy and fulfilled life.
