In Peace of Mind, DALARNA talks to her friend about keeping herself in balance when it comes to her loved ones vs. her private life.
DALARNA: Sometimes you can’t really give a damn what other people expect from you. You can’t always give yourself over to their needs. That may come off sounding selfish but you actually need to be more selfish. You’re too damn good hearted and it gets you all messed up inside. You need to have balance. Balance is key. Easier said than done, but it’s essential to your peace of mind. This way you don’t feel guilty over not being there for those you care about and you also have the time you deserve to live your life fully.
