Self-Help Horoscope

Taurus
April 19 - May 19

Today you may feel a bit overwhelmed with obligations and commitments to friends and organizations. There is not a moment free to yourself, not even to go to the bathroom. Clearly, something is out of balance here, dear Taurus. It is time for you to once again take charge of your life. It is wonderful that you have such a giving and generous spirit, but you do no one any favors if you burn out from exhaustion. Take some time for yourself to refill the well of your soul.

Not to delve too deeply into what my therapist and I discuss once a week (mandatory for the Prozac/suicidal thoughts), but this? Is exactly what we're talking about. "Obligations" and "commitments" led to to the point where I broke down. I forgot to take time for myself. So Dr. B and I have decided we're really going to work on getting me a good dose of narcissism. A big part of my problem is that I'm more willing to meet the needs of others rather than take care of my own so he wants to make me a little bit more selfish. Teach me that I'm worthy of things I never considered myself worthy of before. Sounds good huh?

I too have a hard to time taking time for myself. In the last year it's been my focus. It's great. Oddly enough I find now I have even more to give to others.
Go get selfish girl!
