If you were to ask me five years ago to go out and save the lives of people who are in danger, the easy answer would be: “Let’s go!!” But, ask me to help myself, it would have been an apprehensive, “No, I’m good.” First responders are taught service to others, service to the community. It is very important to teach service to self at the same time. In order to be the best person on various levels to those in your life, it is critical to make sure you are 100% in all areas of your well-being. Trauma, if not dealt with, will eventually come back and rear its ugly head.
