The words self-care and self-love get thrown around a lot lately. That’s a good thing. It means people are realizing that all good things start from within you. When you take care of yourself, you can take care of others. To have healthy interactions and relationships with others, you have to have a super healthy relationship with yourself. This means taking care of yourself physically and mentally (self-care) and being kind to yourself (self-love).
While going through life with an empty “cup” only leaves space open for the wrong type of people who will most certainly take advantage of your vulnerabilities and you will often fill it with anything out of desperation, filling your own “cup” with what makes you most happy and fulfilled leaves you open much healthier interactions with others. I know this from personal experience.
Self-care can look like many things, it could be creating boundaries, surrounding yourself with the right people, going to the spa, going to the gym, being active, being social, eating healthier, continuously learning, and exploring the world.
This also includes speaking to a therapist to work through things that hold you back or even a coach to help you plan your pace. It looks differently to different people but forge out your own journey and figure out how to fill your cup. These actions will help you appreciate and love yourself. This is the ultimate gift you can give yourself.
Whether you are looking for romance or even want to improve your social life or find a new job self-care and self-love will help you project a beacon of light to attract the best opportunities for you. You are WORTHY of all good things. Be kind to and respect yourself. It starts with you.
TRY THIS: reflect on your “cup” and what you are missing in your life then lay out a plan to help fill it.
POST IT NOTE: I will love and care for myself
