Manage episode 375040348 series 2789941
There's a big ol' list of things we have the potential to gain through consistent self-care, but something that we don't often talk about or consider is the thing we might lose in that process.
Join me, Erica Webb, in this episode of SelfKind where I'm posing the question: Can the act of self-care threaten your identity? And could that be the reason it feels so hard to start and/or maintain?
In this episode we're diving into exploring the complex interplay between self-care and personal identity. You'll hear:
- about the potential losses that can arise when you start to prioritise your needs - including the uncomfortable shifts in self-perception and how others view you
- the impact of the societal praises of selflessness and how this can conflict with prioritising our own needs and well-being
- practical tips to navigate this potentially challenging misalignment.
