Wisdom of the Ages 124

“I have learned that it is not UNChristian to take care of one’s self, that it is perfectly “okay” to say no to someone’s request of me – whatever the request – even if I’m only tired. Sometimes I have information overload and I am “brain tired” I have learned that this life is not a sprint race, it is a marathon. I intend to endure to the end and finish well. Jesus said that we are to love others as we love ourselves. That must mean that if we are to love others in abundance, then we MUST love ourselves in abundance and part of that loving ourselves is taking care of ourselves even in the face of experiencing the disapproval of others. I don’t ultimately answer to them anyway.”
