I had to put on my own oxygen mask first.

I crashed and burned.

But I could still breathe.

So I took a deep breath.

Deep breaths are vital for my self-care.

So is self-compassion.

Self-compassion gives me the “oxygen” I need.

To be vulnerable.

To be loving.

Even when I'm going down in flames.
