Magik and creativity share the message to: Give yourself a break. There’s enough people getting upset over things that are out of their control. They’re not directing their frustration at you. Why do you keep taking it on and piling on top of what isn’t yours to begin with? Step out of the shadows and stop thinking everything is on your shoulders and your responsibility. You owe it to yourself.
You’re putting out so much of yourself to others and not being compensated fairly for the effort. You can choose not to do it any more, or calmly express your position in hopes others will understand how they’ve been taking advantage of you. If they don’t, you have a decision to make. Don’t make it lightly.
The worst thing people do is under-value their own self-worth. Stop listening to the nay-sayers and replaying the negative comments in your head. Those messages are not for you, they are reflections of what those doing the talking feel about themselves. Give the message back to them and let them carry their own baggage.
This weekend, put yourself first. Spend time relaxing, catch up on some sleep, go for a drive and allow yourself to have a spontaneous adventure. Set some time aside for meditation, updating your grimoire or your journal. Do something for the inner you as well as the physical you.
Don’t be afraid to say “no” if someone asks you to do something you really don’t want to do. It’s ok to say “no”. If they get upset, let them know their expectations of you are on them. You have the right to put yourself first, even if it’s only now and then.
