Share the Air

I hear a lot of “self care/self development” advocates talking about “you have to put your oxygen mask on first, before you can help anyone else.”

You’ve had that mask on for years. It’s now bejeweled and you have a closet full of masks in various shapes and sizes. You’re so full of oxygen you’re a bit bloated. Still busy “blowing up”. Isn’t it about time you got around to the second part of that airplane safety message?

There are people around you who cannot breathe. Share the air. Spread the resources. Look after others. Dang it.
