At the back of my business cards are the following words: “You can only care for others, if you care enough to take care of yourself.” In journeying with my husband’s depression that became chronic and ended in his self-death, I had to find ways to stay resilient by taking care of myself.
Any illness or trauma provides a mirror that reflects where we need to adjust our lifestyle or coping mechanisms.
