Myth: Making yourself a priority means you are ignoring the needs of others in your life
Truth: You can prioritize your wellbeing and care for the needs of others at the same time. The two are not mutually exclusive.
Many people think that prioritizing ourselves means not taking care of our family, social, academic, and professional responsibilities. This is not the case. It means you are using revolutionary self-care activities to make sure you are nurtured and supported. We have the right to be nurtured and supported in life.
Many of us need to actively claim our time, space, happiness, and joy. Unfortunately, a lot of us don’t have people in our lives or workplaces that ask if we feel nurtured and cared for. There is often no one saying, “Hey, you have been working hard lately, why don’t you take some time to yourself to rest and rejuvenate.” If you do have these people in your life, that’s wonderful! If you don’t have these people in your life, claim your peace by being firm in your commitment to revolutionary self-care activities. When we learn to claim our peace and happiness, we can avoid feeling as though our emotions are overly influenced by things that are out of our control.
