Caring For Yourself And Others

Caring

Interdependent Connection

By taking care of others, you are looking after yourself. And to take care of others, you need to think of yourself and your own well-being, but doing so from a place of generosity rather than thinking of what “I want” or “I need.” It’s a cycle of interdependence and connection – we need to take care of others in order to take care of ourselves, and we need to take care of ourselves in order to take care of others. By doing so, we benefit one another.
