When you do acts of kindness for others, do you expect?
It's ok if you do, but it's important that you acknowledge this.
Because, you may be doing it for seeking a sense of approval, love, or to feel worthy.
[I know because I did this not even being aware of this - I'm a Leo and love doing nice things for others but there was a switch where now I only do if I'm feeling called to do it without expectation and guilt from someone else]
After all, it is not true kindness, unless you do not seek anything in return.
Everything you seek is already within you!
You do not need to do things for others. In fact, by doing for others you're actually depleting yourself.
So why not try something different?!?
If you feel like you must do, pour that energy back into you.
Fill your cup up so much so that if you do feel called to do something for someone, you are not taking away from yourself.
Wise words once spoke to me, "Sometimes you need to be selfish." Those words have spoken to me so profoundly.
Why do we think that being "selfish" is a bad thing? Why do we think that we can't take time for ourselves or that is taking away from others?
We are here for a reason, but we can not give back to others unless our cup is full.
It's one thing to intellectually know this, but how do you put this into action?
Simple, start taking your time back. Reclaim your power. Stop doing anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. Stop feeling like you need to say yes to everyone or that it won't get done the "right" way unless you do it yourself.
You are only human! Start being more compassionate towards yourself and know that you are doing the best you can. It's not in the doing that makes you more lovable, whole, or complete, it's in the being.
How do you show up in life? When you can radiate love, peace, & happiness, then you can truly start helping others...just by being you! Anything that stirs up anger, resentment, sadness, depression, it's important to look at, feel, observe.
If it's because you're doing something that you don't want to do out of obligation or you feel like you need to, stop!
You are amazing, whole, & perfect just as you are!
You are such a bright light in this world!
And you are loved beyond measure!
Sending You So Much Love & Light, ❤️Andrea XOXO
P.S. You can do amazing things for people, even repeatedly, but only the right people that are meant to be in your life will truly value what you're doing for them. Don't be afraid to walk away from people that are constantly taking from you. You are meant to have your cup poured into too.

WHY DID I BECOME AN ANGEL TAROT READER? As an empath, I can actually feel what others are feeling. Growing up this has been quite painful to experience, especially since I wasn’t aware of this until the last few years. I have always wanted to help people, and my gift of speaking with my Angels & Spirit Guides has opened up an amazing avenue to do so. Because of these gifts, I can now help beautiful souls reconnect with their intuition & heart to live more fulfilling lives. I am still amazed at the messages that come through and the feedback that clients provide saying how much these messages are in alignment with what is going on in their lives. I am so grateful for the guidance, clarity, and key insights that come through to help my clients live their lives with more love, ease, and grace.
