Day 2 ~ 3 Day Quote Challenge.

Fire

– author unknown

This needs to be tattooed somewhere on my body – a permanent reminder of the importance of setting boundaries and protecting oneself. I am notorious for going beyond my means in order to take care of the ones I love, and I exhaust myself to the point of soul degeneration. It’s so unhealthy. This quote exemplifies the mantra I have been attempting to adopt and embrace wholeheartedly – that my mental and emotional integrity is of value and worth prioritizing.

I will no longer set myself on fire to keep anyone, no matter how much I may love and care for them, warm. My Freedom is important too.
