Self-Care is so important because there is so much going on in the world today and it is so essential to have a peace of mind. We have to take time to offer ourselves the same care and attention that we offer others because if not you’ll quickly become burned out. Some of us were taught that it was selfish to put yourself first, but in many instances, it is so necessary. How will you know how someone is to treat you if you don’t know how to treat yourself? Or what it is that you deserve? While it is vitally necessary to have some time to yourself, if you don’t take the time, you’re more than likely not going to get the time that you need. It’s so easy to get caught up in everyday life that your own needs become almost non-existent. If you’re anything like me “a nurturer” it is joy for me to take care of someone else, I’m absolutely in love with it, but if I don’t offer myself that same love and care then I’m only proving how much I can love someone else instead of myself. While there is nothing wrong with taking care of others, you just have to make sure you have a balance and take care of YOU too!
