Do you tend to put other’s needs first all the time?
Maybe you’re always thinking of other’s, and your stress has increased?
Self care is not selfish, even though you may feel this way at times. Looking after everyone else in your life, and putting their needs over yours may lead to poorer outcomes in your relationships. Doing this may feel good in the moment, and may distract you from what you may be experiencing in your own life, but if you consistently put other’s needs before your own, it can lead to a couple of things.
Therapist Paris Gibson uncovers what these are, and how you can prioritise self care in your life, and put your own oxygen mask on first before looking after others.
