Do You Put Your Oxygen Mask On First?

I have a confession to make. During my 3rd year of working as a massage therapist, I almost threw in the towel and called it quits. You see, during this early stage of my career, I was unknowingly giving too much of my time and energy away to clients, while simultaneously trying to be there
