Who’s sick of hearing the words “self care”
I think we have self care all wrong- self care should never be used as a tool to increase productivity.
Let me say it again for the people in the back : SELF CARE SHOULD NEVER BE USED AS A TOOL TO INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY!
I’m tired about hearing about not being able to “pour from an empty cup.” This suggests that we can’t be good mothers, wives, employees, supervisors etc. if we don’t take care of ourselves. But that mentality suggests that we need to care for ourselves only to continue to pour out onto everyone else. What if we actually cared for our wellbeing’s and did things that brought us joy because we DESERVE joy? Full stop. Yes- the people around us will reap the benefits of this- but that should be ONE of the benefits – NOT the whole point.
