Self Care Is Self Love Not Selfish
Updated: Feb 16
You will find that on your journey to make yourself a priority that some of the people around you may feel insecure, defensive, or abandoned. That is a them thing, not a you thing. It is not your duty to make others feel good about your evolution. Imagine how exhausting that would be! Think about explaining yourself to everyone the feels they deserve an explanation, or that you have to justify your choices and needs to them? Justifying your needs... isn't that how we got here in the first place? Putting everyone else before yourself is something you are great at, but this is about putting you first, but you're not so good at that are you. Sometimes If you are a giver, a lover, a healer when you stop expending your energy on the world around you that loss will definitely be felt in the universe, but it is important to remember that you are important and you are worthy of the same love and care that you put out into the world. In the end, the people that really care about you, the "real ones", the selfless ones, the ones that maintain a healthy unconditional relationship with you will support your self care journey. They will support you because they want you to be stronger, healthier, and happier because they love you! That is what love is!!! Love is patient, kind, supportive, understanding, and adaptive to the evolution of it's participants. If it's not ... then it isn't love. You don't need anyone in your life that is simply there to take and could care less about your well being. No Energy Vamps Allowed, love is reciprocal! That's today's message, self care is self love, not selfish, so you do you boo boo, and keep on trucking on your self care journey. Much love.
