When you’re ready to dump all the things you’ve got on your plate and run away from your life, you’re going to hear someone say that you need to make you a priority first.
That you need to put self-care at the top of your to-do list.
And that’s when you want to punch the person who said it in the face.
You’ve done all the things you were told were self-care. But you’re still anxious that you’re going to screw things up.
You want things to be perfect and under control, so being told to go with the flow and just “be” pisses you off more than arriving at the dry cleaners 2 minutes after they closed.
The "self-care" things you tried don’t feel like self-care. They feel like another chore that you don’t have the time or energy or interest for…
And that makes you feel even more like shit about yourself as you stare at the pile of overdue laundry sitting on top of the washing machine and wonder if you need to throw your self-esteem in with the darks.
And you deserve a better way….
