Tell us about a time when you should have helped someone… but didn’t.


Sorry, I’m busy, is the phrase, I have used for myself, as I learned to take time for me.

After many years of giving of myself to family, friends, community and my country, I have learned or should I say discovered, it is alright to be a little selfish for thyself.

I learned my acts of selfishness for myself has inspired and assisted many family, and friends, with the belief that being a little selfish can heal the soul.

So, “Sorry I’m busy,” should occasionally be applied to thyself, since a little selflessness for thyself, can heal the soul.

Taking appropriate time for your own rejuvenation is actually a way to be a better caregiver to others.
