Self Care...

Self Care..

Self care isn’t always pretty , it’s not always candles and a bathtub full of roses , sometimes it’s forcing yourself to get out of bed and dragging yourself , sometimes it’s the pep talk you give to yourself or the quick cry in the corner . sometimes it is convincing yourself to do all these things you should be doing but you have no will whatsoever , sometimes it’s cutting some ties no matter how precious they were , sometimes it’s the bitter medicine you need to give yourself .
Self care isn’t always pretty but it’s so worth it .


"Men need to hunt. She obviously understands this. She’s offering herself as prey. Not easy prey. But willing.”

Sometimes giving one's self some breathing room to think...not think, to reflect as they are ready and receptive to the truths that may be obvious to the rest of world. Sometimes it's hard to see the forest for the trees on a moonless night. Waiting will often fix the troubles we face. (which is mighty hard for me, because I can be a firecracker and rush if I feel strongly about something or someone, positively or negatively.)

Great post! Lots of truth here!

The only way to be able to take care of someone else, be it a friendship, work mates, family, relations... pets....

Is first to be able to take care of yourself and indulge yourself in that too.

take care, dear.
you are worth it.

Our greatest weapon against stress is our ability to chose one thought over another. Don't assume you're in bad shape because you've run out of energy to impress others . . solitude is where you put your chaos to rest while you refresh your inner peace.

It's the evidence that it's worth it that's hard to come by.

Sometimes it's a result of seeing a photo of yourself and thinking, "I look like THAT???"
