Why we must fill our own cup first or #selfcare and being a #mother

I thought a good mother sacrifices herself for her children. Then I understood how unfair this idea was on the kids. Children deserve a happy mother, fulfilled by her role. This is not easy nor practicable but it is going to be my aim: self-care first.

I want to take good care of myself because I am a human being. I also want to enjoy life, feel light and have a laugh. I want to rest, I want to have adult conversations, I want to take care of my body. I want my children to understand how happy I am to take care of them. I don’t want them to think they are a burden.

So it is my job to fill my cup first. Then I can give from the overflow.
