Remember the tetter-totter? One person on each end. If one pushes up, the other goes down. Or if both are the same weight, the tetter-toter is balanced.
Generally, most people are out of balance in their favor. Most of their life is spent for themselves and their family.
But there are those out-of-balance types that have the opposite problem. To the detriment of themselves and their loved ones, they give excessively to others.
Only you can determine what is balanced for you. Be aware of your needs and the needs of your loved ones. Are you meeting your personal needs and the needs of those closest to you?
Are your relationships strong and healthy or is there resentment because you are missing too often?
Be aware. Talk to those closest to you. Always be checking that the tetter-totter is level.
