The many faces of self-care

Today, I feel strong.

I spoke up for myself yesterday and set clear boundaries surrounding D's relapse plan and our continuing relationship post-probation.

I paid my bills and am carrying no credit card debt.

I started pre-studying for when classes begin next week, and I feel ahead of the game and ready to go.

I think I might finally be getting the hang of what this whole "self-care" thing really means.

Good for you!

When you put yourself first, others will follow suit :0)

So proud of you and all your efforts.

I think the thing for me was to understand that I needed to care for myself in the same manner that I cared for my children, or anyone else and then I could be OK.
