All Lives Matter: And You Do Too


And You Do Too

Recently, there has been a lot on social media about "All Lives Matter" vs. "Black Lives Matter".  Whether you adhere to one or the other of this idea, there is another that is central to you.  Yes, your life matters too.

Too many times, the importance of one's own life is not considered important to them.  There are those who give far beyond what is needed in their attempt to take care of others who "take and take" without giving in return.  Others live with abuse.  In my practice as a psychologist, I see those who have given and given until their own identity is lost.  

One of my favorite passages from the Bible refers to "Love thy neighbor as thyself".  That is God's message.  In speaking this, it tells that while we are to give to others, we are also to care for our own needs.
