“Put on your own “oxygen mask” so you are able to take care of your child and your family.”
No, no, no, no.
I am not putting on my oxygen mask SO that I can take care of my child and family.
I am putting on my oxygen mask because I deserve to be able to breath.
Will I help my kids and family with theirs, after mine is on? Of course- I do have that responsibility.
But I take care of myself because it’s important to me. Period.
