should self-care comes’ first? Yes, being there for others is a very good thing but it does not mean that you leave yourself behind. Sometimes we forget ourselves and taking care of everyone else while feeling stressed. But it is time to give attention to yourself. Stop all this now immediately as self-care is equally important. While some people are still struggling to put themselves first before others, we are raised in a way to complete the needs of others forgetting ours. And this is not a nice thing to do. Self-care is the most important thing to do.
There are some of the misconceptions that people carry with them which makes them not care about themselves. Have a look at these misconceptions and get rid of all these as soon as it is possible.
We denote self-care as being selfish
We usually treat self-care as being selfish. But it is not as taking care of ourselves is opposite to selfish. It makes us strong so we become able to support all our loved ones. We will be of no use to anyone in the case if we feel ill. Just think when the air hostess tells us to put on our oxygen masks first on us before we help the others. In the same way, we can help others only when we help us.
We think both the rescuing and the caring as same things
One of the major misconceptions is that we used to consider both the rescue and the caring as the same things. We often sacrifice self-care because we are too busy caring for others. But make sure you learn the main lessons of life. Even the selfishness is when you decide for others that which is right for them. This should be based on their own needs after all, who you are to decide what other people want. It is time to focus on ourselves and stop trying to ruin other’s lives.
Let them face their challenges and grow stronger. It helps them to learn a lesson with their own experience. Yes, it is a hard truth to face but anyhow, you have to accept the truth. Here I am not saying that you should not support anyone but remember that there is a difference between providing support to someone and turning their life according to you.
We don’t even realize that we teach our people how to treat us
It is our actions that teach people how to treat us. We give signs to the people out there that you are a rescuer and if you sacrifice all your needs in completing other’s needs then again you are committing a mistake.
What should we do?
Nurture your relationship with all others
Many people have been driven with so many things out there such as religion, caste, money, success while making relationships. While creating relationships with others, they forget to make the relationship with themselves. Here I am saying that making your relationship means you should have enough time to take care of yourself. You should spend some time just for you and just for your care.
When you spend time with yourself then you can create good relationships not just with you but as well as with others as well. Therefore, make sure you nurture all the relationships not just with others but as well as with yourself.
Always remember what is more important in life!!!
Yes, it is good to have goals in your life and but always remember what is more important in life. Only money or something else is not important, it is only you who is the most important thing. So, make sure you spend enough time with yourself. Don’t feel guilty while taking time for yourself.
So, what should you do?
According to the latest national news in English, make sure you have space 30 to 40 minutes for yourself that you spend for your care to have good mental and physical health. No matter what you do while spending time with yourself whether it is meditation, listening to songs, podcasts or reading a book, no matter what you do but make sure you spend some time with you.
