Is it hard for you to do for you what you do for others?

Are you great taking  care of others but so hard to take care of you? 

Or perhaps you think once I take care of everything and everyone and then I can relax and take care of myself!

But that time never comes,...

1. Self-care has very little to do with “treating yourself.”  

Even though treating yourself can absolutely be part of your life,  true self-care is "not salt baths and chocolate cake" as Brianna West says on her post Self-care is Very Unbeautiful Thing. True self-...

How was your summer?

Did you get to fully enjoy and do the things you wanted to do this summer?
