Have you ever heard the saying "you can't pour from an empty cup"? What does this mean to you? To me it means that you can't give to other people when you have nothing left. I believe it is so important to replenish ourselves, in other words to fill up our own cup in order that we can pour to other people. That is why it is so important to take time for ourselves and then we have a enough to give to those we love.
Criticism breaks down the inner spirit. Praise builds it up. Praise yourself as much as you can. Tell yourself how well you are doing with every little thing.
