Self-care is a beautiful, wonderful, magical thing. It can also be a very frustrating and confusing thing. I’m no self-care expert, but I’ve been at this long enough to know what I wish someone would have told me when I first starting taking this journey seriously. As amazing as it is to finally start feeling more confident and comfortable and at peace with yourself, that shit is also hard to get to. It sucks when you’re doing everything “right” but you just keep hitting blocks or getting kicked back down. It sucks a lot.
I remember being really confused for a while because I just wasn’t becoming that groovy chilled out gal I wanted to be, or I would be her one day and not the next. But over time, and with the help of lots of article browsing on Pinterest, I learned a thing or two about this whole self-care journey. So if you’re feeling stuck and baffled, here are some things to keep in mind, some things that I wish I had known about self-care to shed some light on what’sreally going on during this roller coaster ride.
