Class & Forum: Self-Care Is Not Selfish

August 20, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm

It seems that most of us vacillate from a Puritan hangover of feeling it is necessary to sacrifice all of our comfort and luxuries to the greater good in awareness of our privilege, and a deep need to indulge immoderately in things and activities that may not be good for us, in the short or long haul, to compensate for all that sacrifice. Add to that an inner voice that yammers things like: “You don’t deserve that! You aren’t good enough! You didn’t earn that!” and we get into a state where we don’t enjoy our indulgences and resent our sacrifices.

How do we find a realistic balance in real life that resembles the wisdom to don our metaphorical oxygen masks before assisting those of the people depending us? We will explore that challenge and share ideas for how to care for ourselves accountably.
