My friend Carol always says, “We have to fill our own well.”
If we look to our friends, spouses, children, and even our children to fill our empty spaces, then all our relationships go awry. Then we become codependent on others and want them to do the inside work that we have to do ourselves.
To make this our best chapter, we need to fill our own wells. That means taking care of ourselves emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically each day.
