Where the hell did I get that idea? Take it from me, this is a really crappy idea. Asking for help is a strength not a weakness.Read More
Do you feel guilty when you focus on self-care? When you actually put your needs in front of others? I used to for a long time and even when I heard the comparison of putting our oxogen mask on first while in a plane before others, I still didn’t put myself first. Until I had twins as a single mother.Read More
