Self Love Isn't Selfish, It's Vital

Recovery has taught me many things, one of those being that self love is vital. When you look after yourself in all aspects- emotionally, physically, spiritually and socially and put this first you prevent yourself as much as possible from driving into the ground and burning out. As the saying goes "you can't pour from an empty cup". This allows you to do what you need to do to be well which includes knowing your limits and boundaries but to still be able to give and help others. 

For me my recovery and looking after myself comes first because without it I wouldn't be here and without continuing to make that choice I would be in a ditch pretty quickly. You need to start pampering yourself like you do with others, say no to people and things that are stressing you out or are too overwhelming, say yes to things that you enjoy and make you happy or want to try, ask for help, simplify your life, cut toxic people out and get back to yourself and your needs.

Self love isn't selfish it truly is vital for a healthy life in all aspects so I challenge you to put yourself first and see and feel the benefits because after all you're worth it!. 😉
