The Effects of Self Care

The Effects of Self Care


Self-care is an act of Self Love.

As we practice self-care and loving ourselves, we start to become aware of all the ways in which we were previously unloving towards ourselves.

We start to notice all the behaviours and standards we had for ourselves that were based on how little we loved and valued ourselves.

As our love for ourselves increases so does the way we value ourselves. This impacts our behaviours and standards.

When our self-love was low, we treated ourselves badly and we allowed others to treat us badly too. As our self-love increases, the way we treat ourselves improves and we no longer allow others to treat us badly.

As our self-care improves, the standard of care we give others improves.

As our self-love increases, our love for others increases.

As our standards for ourselves improve our standards for others improves.

The way we treat others is a reflection of the way we treat and feel about ourselves.


Take care
