Introduction: Why You Should Start Looking Out for Yourself

It’s not easy being a caretaker. From the outside, it looks like we are the ones who are always there for people – that we always have to be responsible for other’s feelings, problems and lives. That we’re the ones in control. But the truth is that it’s hard to be a caretaker because we have to constantly deal with our own feelings, problems and lives as well. That’s why it’s so important to look out for yourself first.
It’s hard to be a caretaker, because it’s hard to let people go. All those things that you share between the two of you make up your life together – from the inside jokes to the bad habits. All of it is a part of who you are. But when you’re rounding up life with someone, eventually they have to go their own way, and you have to let them go. You have to let them abandon you. You have to let them leave.

What is Self Care & Does it Actually Work?

Self care is a strategy used by people who are responsible for others. It’s good practice to look out for yourself first, it doesn’t imply that you need to veer away from helping others. You can be a great caregiver and an amazing self-carer at the same time. But there’s a big distinction between being a caretaker and being a self-carer. Being a self-carer means looking out for yourself first. Self care is like a medicine that heals you and also helps you to look out for others. I’m not very good at self care. I often feel too busy to take time out for myself. But I know that it is really important to pay attention to myself and my needs, which is why I want you all to be good self-carers, so we can look out for each other and make the world a better place together!(more…)

What are the Best Ways to Protect Yourself from Toxic People and Places?

Toxic people aren’t always easy to identify because they pretend to be nice and helpful. But often, they have some sort of agenda so they will do things that make you feel like you need to take care of them or places that are harmful for you. You are the only one who knows what’s healthy for you and what isn’t. To protect yourself, you need to ask yourself these questions:
Is this person making it difficult for you to do what’s good for you?
Are they trying to make you feel guilty about how you live your life so that you will do things their way?
Are they manipulating the truth or lying to get what they want?
