How do you regard yourself?

Lately, I’ve invited folks into self-care, self-love, daring to put themselves first in service of the truth that you cannot give away what you do not possess. And I’ve been met with some disbelief, perhaps even disdain. The idea that we are to serve, to give, to do for others runs deep! And today, the word regard showed up in my writing:

Who do you hold in high regard?
What puts a person in that category for you?
Do you have high regard for someone who ignores their own well-being for the sake of others?

How about you? Do your actions tell people:

I value YOU and I do not value ME?
Do you hold yourself in high regard?
What if you did?

What is YOUR wisdom?
