Giving from a full cup: The True Essence of the Feminine

We often hear the advice to “fill our own cup” and “put on our own oxygen mask first,” yet despite understanding the importance of self-care, many of us struggle to prioritize our own needs. Woman or man. This internal conflict isn’t a failure; it’s a reflection of the deep programming that shapes how we think and act. Recognizing this is the first step towards change.

Forgive yourself for the times you’ve placed others’ needs before your own. Or gave and gave from an empty tank. It’s okay. This forgiveness is part of embracing the rise of yin—a powerful, nurturing energy that balances the active yang within us. And the dominant yang energy that has been part of our culture as long as we’ve known it. As we nurture this balance, we cultivate a greater truth and harmony both within ourselves and in our interactions, whether online or off.

Let’s be compassionate with ourselves and lead by example. Embrace this rebalancing as a source of strength. Encourage others (especially our children) by showing how self-care is vital not just for personal well-being, but for the collective health of our communities. Be the change you wish to see, and watch as the world transforms with you.
