It is said that healers are not made, but rather they are born. For some of us, there is an innate need to serve that is encoded into the fabric of our very being. Healing comes from a deep and genuine place of love and care, but healers often give away so much of this love and care that there is nothing left for themselves. Burnout is common for those who serve others, as the vessel that once overflowed becomes dry. It is nothing short of ironic that we are called to tend to others, yet lack the compassionate to end to ourselves. It is crucial that we find strike the balance between keeping ourselves whole while giving so much of ourselves away in service to others. If we neglect ourselves, we lose our ability to help others, making the world a darker place without your light.
“When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows your to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel” -Eleanor Brownn Read Facebook Status
