"First, I love myself. Then I love my family. Then I love everyone in the whole world, especially the baddies because they need the most love"
Wise words from a 5 year old in bed this morning.
This is the exact opposite of how I was taught. I went to a religious school where it was clear you must put others before yourself. At Brownies and Guides - it was literally the Guide LAW to "put others before yourself"
Then we wonder why we are a generation full of burnt-out adults, lacking any priority for self-care, working long hours, doing it all, criticising ourselves for not being perfect and crippled with 'busy-life' syndrome to try and prove our worth through 'doing' over just 'being', putting everyone else's needs before our own.
I love the shift that is coming for our children's generation. Them being taught to 'fill up their cup', how we must fit our own oxygen mask first before helping others. It's not selfish, it's necessary. And we'll then have enough love to give to to the 'whole world' and even have enough left for the 'baddies'. Game changing stuff.
