Re: [CHAT] I look after me

I certainly did, in the beginning. I think it comes back to the point that was made earlier about having nothing to show for self-care. It seemed like there were 'more' important and productive things I could be doing

We already talked about it a little beforehand, but the focus in society around doing the most and being the best has definitely meant I've felt undeserving of self-care.

Everyone else should be put before me.  Well that's what I believe anyway.

Re: [CHAT] I look after me

Yeah, I still struggle to feel deserving of self care- which is really just one big self destructive cycle huh? Don't feel you deserve self care, dont self care, feel worse, dont feel you deserve self care....rinse and repeat. Not so helpful, but sadly the brain doesnt always make choices based on logic :/

 

@N1ghtW1ng, sleep well! Great chatting Smiley Happy

I felt like I was being selfish and that I didnt deserve to give myself some time out.

Have you ever felt undeserving of self care-
Yes, all the time, partly because feeling worthless/felling I deserve things is something I struggle with in general, and sometimes because I find self care can slip into distractions if I'm not careful
