i only realized how much i had
neglected myself, once i started
looking after myself.
grief takes a toll.
worry takes a toll.
loneliness takes a toll.
loving hard takes a toll.
even when that love comes from a
well meaning place. from a heart
that is golden. take the time to
nourish your soul. i beg you.
everyone is better off when you
can love with arms that are not
crumbling. and everyone is better
off when, with the same beautiful
devotion, you can love yourself too.
