Self care isn’t just treating yourself from time to time. It’s choosing to keep your peace during an argument. It’s not feeling guilty for saying no. It’s spending less time with negative people. It’s prioritizing your mental health. It’s making time to pray and meditate. It’s choosing not to take things personally.
