Love Yourself?

When you’re on an airplane, they strongly suggest that if the oxygen masks deploy, you should put yours on first. They don’t say that because they like you more than everybody else, or because you are the most important person on the plane; they say it because everyone on the plane is equally important and you can’t help anyone else if you can’t breathe. If I don my oxygen mask because my life is more valuable to me than anyone else’s, I might survive… but guilt and shame will be my lot. If I put my mask on and immediately turn to help the next person… I can survive and feel good about myself. The goal for today: know that “Love thy neighbor as thyself” doesn’t mean look out for #1… it means get your shit together specifically so you can be more helpful & useful to others! Have a great day everybody!
