Self Love Is Not Selfish!

I am currently just realizing I need more me time and that I am not wonder woman who can do it all. I recently had a meltdown from exhaustion and stress and am now trying to get myself out of this hole and back to me. Being a mum is hard, but I love my kiddies so much and wouldn’t change being a mum for the world. I just need to now focus a bit more on me so when it all gets too hard I don’t let it get on top of me again. This post is incredible and it’s exactly where I am currently at.

Mum from the Heart

As Mums we so often hold the weight of the world on our shoulders. We put the needs of our family first. We become Mum, then wife and often feel like we loose ourselves along the way. We try to be the Perfect Mum, raising perfect kids and keeping our house perfect at the same time. All the while we loose site of the most important thing. US. We need to love ourselves, we need to make ourselves a priority too. There is nothing selfish about this act. Not only is self love important it is imperative to be the best version of ourselves. How can being the best version of ourselves be selfish? If we cannot love ourselves, cannot make our own needs a priority, if we give and give and never refuel, we lead ourselves into resentment, anxiety, depression and a everything in between.

It is not Selfish to Love yourself

Everything in the universe…

  1. The old wonder woman syndrome catches out so many Mums! We feel like we have to have/do/be it all and exhaustion and breakdown soon follow! I have to remind myself that self love is not selfish and I am glad that this post helped you to see that too xx
