So helpful and insightful. Taking a step outside the ego and pause before moving forward.

Thanks for such a good read.

I really enjoyed this so much thank you for sharing and it’s what I’ve been working on the past few months on Ego, Self Care, Self Love and specially Empathy. I found out that I was unaware I was unaware and you can’t fix a hole in the wall you can’t see. That’s why I’m taking a break stepping away from any judgmental, big egos for my mental health. When you fix the traumas in you’re own life first every thing else will start to a-line with your soul. If outside validation is your only source of nourishment, you will be hungry for the

rest of your life. An unhealed person can

find offense in pretty much anything someone does. A healed person understands that the actions of others

have nothing to do with them. Each day you get to decide which one you will be.

Reminder: You don't have to explain

why you want what you want, do what you do, or love what you love. You are allowed to live a life that some people don't

understand. Many people are actually afraid to heal because their entire identity is centered around the trauma theyve

experienced . They have no idea who

they are outside of trauma and that

unknown can be terrifying. Lots of Love ❤️

I have had a few “wake up calls” about self care. Normally, I go, go, go and the worry is always that things will fall apart if I don’t keep going at that crazy pace. Then something happens when everything has to pause,because I physically can’t do anything and there is no choice. Of course, somehow the people around me manage. I have made an effort to be more self-aware when my body or mind are saying “enough is enough, go to bed, or take a break.” I prioritize the deadline tasks so that I can make more manageable choices with my other music projects that won’t suffer if they wait 24hours. More self care usually results in better performance when I am actually on a task. I’m better able to focus.
