Western cultures promote the competing values of both individualism and the fear of being “selfish.” This can lead to a denial of self-compassion. In reality, it may be that taking care of ourselves is one of the most generous things we can do for others, releasing them from a set of burdens and filling our own cups so that we have something to give. 

Rev. Kevin Tarsa and Allison Rivers Samson, Worship Associate
