Women are natural caretakers. Whether they’re a mom, wife, teacher, nurse, etc., they are always providing for those around them. It’s normal that women tend to put themselves last and don’t think it’s important to take care of themselves too. Some even think it’s selfish. Quite the opposite – it’s selfish to not take care of ourselves! You’ve probably heard the old saying:
“if mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.”
There’s some truth to that saying and it relates to women in general, not just moms! Think about it…how can you be expected to care for those around you if you’re tired, feeling stressed, and that you just wish you could have five minutes to yourself? There’s nothing for you to give if you’re stressed, overwhelmed, depressed, etc. It’s important to take care of yourself – physically, spiritually, and emotionally!
