Self-care isn’t being selfish

The theme of self-care came up in (almost) in every workshop I run until now.
People often times think that self-care is egoism or being selfish.
I think that self-care is actually the opposite of being selfish.
Self-care is taking care of your needs…instead of expecting someone else to take care of them.
Self-care is looking after yourself…and not expecting from yourself to be OKAY when running on empty batteries.
Self-care is doing what it takes to keep your batteries charged up.
It is radical self-responsibility
Taking care of your wellbeing: physically, mentally, emotionally
Listening to your body giving it the rest, food, activity, ‘doing nothing’…when its needed.
Providing for yourself the safety, security, belonging, love (first & foremost self-love)
Following your own impulses, trusting that you know the Best what is good for you.
At the end of the day you are the one who lives 24/7 with yourself…you know yourself the best
And this could also mean that you are ASKING for help…you are reaching out for SUPPORT
That is also self-care.
Knowing your boundaries&limitations.
Not pushing or expecting from yourself doing it ALL alone, by yourself…nor feeling ashamed of needing help.

Üdvözöllek, Chandra vagyok.

Az elmúlt 10 évben rengeteg nőnek és férfinak volt szerencsém segiteni önmaguk felfedezésében. Van akinek ez az felfedezés az egyéni életcél megtalálásában segitett, másnak tartalmas kapcsolatok kialakitásában, megint másnak pedig a tudatos vezetővé válásban, ismét másnak nőiességének ill. férfiasságának megélésében.
