On Self Care

April 3, 2015

Self care is not weak. Prioritizing self care is not weakness. Self care does not have to be earned or justified. Burning the candle at both ends does nothing but leave you with a burned out mess. There is no prize for damaging you body and mind, and no award for prioritizing the desires of others over your physical, mental, and emotional needs. You have the right to say “no” to any plans and invitations, without need for guilt or justifications. You have the right to choose plans that heal and reenergize you, over any others. You deserve to feel well-rested, happy, healthy, and as pain free as possible. You have the right to distance or cut yourself off from people who do not support those goals, because they do not have your best interests in mind or heart.

Self care is not weak. Self care is not selfish. Self care is not something that should be continually downplayed as a priority. The need for self care does not require anyone else’s approval or permission. Self care is not one-size-fits all.

Self care is essential. Self care is a demonstration of strength and love. Self care is healthy. Self care enables you to care for others. Self care is important because your needs are important and deserve to be met.

You already deserve it. You already earned it. Now go do it.

Until Next Time,
~Rose
