There’s a lot to say here but I’m going to address only this right now:

“Or maybe I have just forgotten that to love myself first means I cannot sacrifice my soul for theirs.

That I need to step aside when they get stuck in the swampy pits of self-doubt and fear — when they shut down, close the door, make sure there is nothing you or anyone else can do.”
