There is an old truism – one that can feel trite from repetition, but is valid nonetheless – that one cannot pour from an empty cup. If we are not replenishing our own resources by nurturing ourselves first, we aren’t in a position to be a great deal of use to anyone else either. If that means we have to withdraw for a while in order to replenish and see clearly: so be it. It isn’t permanent. Sometimes it’s the path back to reciprocity and to balance in our health, relationships, outlook. We shouldn’t be afraid to be solitary when it’s needed.
Have a good week and stay safe x
