I recently received a question from one of my social media followers who asked: “How can I love myself more and not drain myself while raising two very young boys? I’m basically driving myself into the ground, but it’s not like I can just stop.” I wanted to speak to this situation, as it effects so many of us out there. There will be circumstances that arise in our lives that require us to be a caregiver, and parenting is one of the major ones. However, without approaching these situations from a space of self-love, we can end up doing damage not just to ourselves, but to those we’re trying to care for, as well. In this video, I give three steps for how to begin loving yourself more in this situation, plus speak about why draining ourselves is so detrimental to our wellbeing, and what the effect of being drained has on the development of our children.
