Ed (1)

Ed Sheeran released a new album. I have not yet purchased it, though I will soon:  so many marvelous songs.

Today's song -- Save Myself.

It is rare that a song speaks to me the way this one does; the first time I heard it, I was in a particularly vulnerable state of mind, and it nearly brought me to tears.

I gave you all my energy
And I took away your pain
'Cause human beings are destined to
Radiate or drain
What line do we stand upon 
'Cause from here it looks the same?

For those of us who are inclined to be Givers -- who enjoy, more than anything, caretaking and helping -- we run the risk of running empty.

It is OK to look after oneself.
In fact, it might be important.

I hope you enjoy.
