Love Yourself First
Self-care isn’t selfish; it’s essential for a fulfilling life
Prioritizing self-care might seem selfish, especially around Valentine’s Day and Lent, the time of year we’re reminded to think of others and practice self-sacrifice. But what if the ultimate act of love was to strive to achieve a truly joyful and fulfilling life? When people are at their best, they build healthier and more fulfilling connections with others.
A psychiatrist in the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine explained that by making self-care a priority and embracing self-love, one unlocks a deeper sense of purpose, greater reliance and the capacity to truly connect with others. It is the ultimate gift for oneself and those around.
