  1. The first thing to do is acknowledge there is a problem that needs attention. Then be attentive to your need. Self care is never selfishness. Those of us born as empaths, need patients and practice but it has to begin to be effective.

    1. Thanks so much, people confuse selfishness with self love. Self love is being mindful of your health, things that actually means the world to you. But selfishness on the other hand is doing anything good for yourself at the detriment of other people

  2. Isn’t it so odd that taking time for yourself and doing what you need to do to feel calm and at peace is considered selfish? I’m working past this mindset. I need to be the best me for myself to be the best me for someone else. My mental health and state are very important to me now after years of neglecting who God created me to be. People get the renewed me now instead of the stressed-out people pleaser. And, we are both so much happier. 🥰

    1. I’m sorry to hear that but at least you’re taking steps in the right direction. It really all starts with taking small steps and working towards bigger things.


      1. Yeah it was the same for me. Especially at the beginning when we didn’t know much about the virus. Those were very stressful months.


      2. Very true. Plus, very few people are alive today who lived through the last pandemic and we don’t have guidance from others who have. It was all trial and error

  4. Yes, you are right. The “me time” is too scarce in our life. Every day we rush from one thing to another without much reflections because there are so much to do and so little time.

    1. I always encourage people not to see themselves as damaged because they have mental health issues. You just need to get help for them and try to be the best version of yourself that you can be.
