Self care is the action behind self- love. To have love for something, means it must be handled with care. As you should do with yourself. Too often we put ourselves on the back burner.
Offering support, time, & energy to everyone but ourselves
In doing so, can you say you love yourself if you don’t take care of yourself? Self love is the underlying factor. What you do with that love results in The care of self.
Lending a helping hand is our duty. But in order for the hand to be genuine and to come from a place of love. The individual giving needs to be in a good place mentally. There should be no strain on the heart in giving or lending a helping hand.
So the question lies. In which way do you exercise the act of selfcare? Do you make giving to yourself a priority?
We must take care of ourselves in order to give and be of service genuinely and without strain upon self.
