Some professions require more of the self, and are greater than their titles. The therapist cannot give adequate counsel if she is broken. The financial advisor cannot be bankrupt. If your job is to be of service and your own needs are not being met, your service will lack value. It will be as if you’ve given nothing at all. In order to serve others, we must first serve our own needs. Yet some professions expect more than is humanly attainable. I am not Superman. Do not wait for me to save anyone. I am the one in need of rescue. And no one else is going to save me. The time has come for me to return my cape.
