I was born in Paris, France.
Be respectful of others, but do what is best for you first. After you are taken care of, then you can worry about the needs of everyone else in your life. A guru from India offered me that guidance years ago. However, it is always easier for me to share the advice with others than it is to follow myself!
Fun Fact: I was married to my partner of ten years in a Buddhist Temple. Some people thought we were crazy and assumed the monks would not accept us since we were non-Buddhist. Five female friends witnessed our ceremony.
