Taking care of yourself is so important. Family, friends, companions, future only exists if you exist. Taking care is important because if you are not well, how are you going to be there for your people; how are you going to take care of them if you dont take care of yourself.

Seek for the help, talk to your people and let out the thoughts that keep you in as a prisoner... sometimes work can get so demotivating, you might want to stay out and not look back, it is ok for you to take that break, to miss that meeting or to skip a day.
