Current ‘scope… rescue myself?

“Is it possible that you have been too receptive and empathetic for your own good lately? I mean, I love how attuned you are to the ebb and flow of subtle energies — it’s one of your most winsome and powerful qualities — but I fear you may be going too far. As heroic as it might seem to be the most sensitive and responsive person in a ten-mile radius, I’d rather see you work on being more self-contained right now. That’s why, for a limited time only, I’m recommending that you turn the full force of your touchy-feely solicitude on yourself.”

This is my Free Will Horoscope for the week of 11/15 – 11/22

Pretty stinking accurate, I am normally very focused on rescuing others, solving problems for others, making life as good as possible for others.  And my radius is a lot bigger than 10 miles.  I just read this today, but it’s been in effect since last week and as I think back on the past several days, I can see that I have been doing a bit more self-care and self-consideration.  I’ve been allowing myself, really pushing myself, to consider what my needs are and consider how those needs might be met.  Which is hard because whenever I turn my focus inward I end up feeling guilty that I’m taking energy away from others.  On the other hand, I don’t want to feel lousy and stressed all the time.  I’m working on convincing myself that self-care sometimes involves letting go of everything else, even just for a brief time and allowing myself to be the central focus of attention.  That’s hard, I always have a sense that I’m holding up the world, one way or another.

I’ll keep working on it.
