I saw this powerful quote the other day:
Self-love is a subversive act.
In trying to find who said it (I think it was Brene Brown), I came across this:
Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.
-Audre Lorde, A Burst of Light (1988)
Nailed it. Both of them.
This is our trouble with self-care. It’s what I work the hardest on in…
