 Intro: Service, Separation and Self Care

  • Service is complicated
  • Shame is powerful
  • It might once have been complicated
  • The results to me feel very simple
  • Worth is hard to foster
  • Coping with worthlessness is hard
  • Self care isn’t obvious to many people
  • My journey of understanding self care began with what’s called Compassionate Communication or Nonviolent Communication, NVC for short
  • Thinking about what I needed helped
  • Learning words for feelings
