Don't lose yourself by giving your soul away; keep some love for yourself. You can't love another if you don't first love yourself.
8/11/10 Sometimes the strong desire to help others is actually a cry for help in our own pain. Focusing on helping, rescuing, and healing others is often a desire to mend a wounded part of ourselves. Overgiving can lead to resentment. This inability to admit to having our own needs and acknowledging them leads to living in crisis mode at the expense of inner peace. Recognize this behavior and find strength to turn within and become a model of empowerment and a source of healing instead of having rescuer burnout.
