I’m sure you’ve heard it before… take care of yourself first because you can’t support anyone else if you’re struggling yourself.
We know that self-care is about making sure we’re doing what’s necessary for us to feel alive, well, vibrant, and healthy. We know not to take a second for granted because this existence in this particular body with this particular perspective at this moment in time doesn’t last and eventually we will cease to exist... so we say seize the day, take chances while you can, and live your best life.
And then we get upset. We get upset with ourselves, and we get upset with the people we’re around.
Because what actually happens when people attempt to live a life of self-love isn’t comfortable.
