This quote jumped off the page at me this morning.

We are not being unloving or selfish when we take care of ourselves,
set limits or boundaries, and say "no" when we need to.
We are actually setting an example for others of
love and self-respect.
-Siri Bletzer

This is something I need to constantly remind myself. I tend to take it to heart when someone is upset or unhappy...thinking it's my fault and that I need to make it "all better," regardless of the cost to myself. I have a feeling some of you out there know what I mean. This is something I'm working on....not only with my children, but with friends and family as well.
