Self Care Doesn’t Mean Self-Comfort
Over the course of this 5-Part Series, we’ve talked about what Self-Care is (as well as what it isn’t) and why it’s important. We’ve discussed a number of different types of Self-Care and how and why you might practice each one. We delved into the guilt we sometimes feel when we try to prioritize our Self-Care as well as other barriers to practicing Self-Care like a lack of time or energy. Today, in the final installment of this series, we’re going to talk about how Self-Care doesn’t always mean Self-Comfort.
Self-Care doesn’t always feel good. Self-Care is all about taking care of yourself and making sure your own needs are met, and with that in mind, sometimes Self-Care looks less like a spa day and more like having a difficult financial conversation with your partner.
Here’s the thing: change is hard, trying to make yourself a better person can be difficult and uncomfortable. But engaging in behaviors that are self-destructive or unhealthy in the name of Self-Care is just as bad. Watching three more episodes of a show on Netflix instead of prioritizing your sleep? Not Self-Care. Taking a day off from work in the name of R&R when you’re really avoiding a troublesome conversation with your boss? Not Self-Care.
It is when you really start delving into the true meaning of Self-Care – what it is and what it can do for you, that you’ll be able to recognize these differences.
