The care-takers mantra

I tried something on for size yesterday. I said to myself: I am responsible for my well-being first. (Sure, caveats apply, but not right now). There's one way of finding out if you're a care-taker. If you're a compulsive care-taker:  This thought gave me anxiety, and a headache.  I found it difficult to relax, and didn't know what to do with myself.

Today, my head still hurts, but I'm having none of this. I'm taking a headache pill, turning my phone off, and doing my work.

Be kind to yourself, it's okay to just give yourself what you need first.  
Such easy words. I can write about not meeting my needs, and I can rant and whine. But I still can't practice actually meeting them, or allowing others to help me do so.
