I love all of your insights, particularly the garden metaphor. It’s so apt. I don’t think self-care is selfish at all; I think that sort of independence and self-love is sacred. I think we have a responsibility to take care of ourselves. I can relate to those relationship experiences. It’s hard not to lose ourselves in the mix. And letting go is essential, even if it is brutal at times. Thank you for reading and offering your insights!
