In honor of Valentine’s Day 2021 we wanted to share some insight into taking care of yourself. In recent years social media has coined the phrases Self-Care Saturday and Self-Love Sunday. I find it pretty ironic that we need a hashtag as a reminder to take care of ourselves. Welcome to the millennial life.
Is There a Difference?
A few months ago, I put up a post on Facebook about self-love versus self-care. While majority of people stated self-love was more important, some believed they were one in the same.
The Breakdown Self-Love and Self-Care
First off let’s break down the terms. Self-care is usually what we do to pamper ourselves. Whether it’s a manicure, pedicure, or a facial self care is usually seen in the outside. On the other hand self-love is giving yourself the necessary attention to get to know yourself. Moreover, we need self-love to become aligned, awakened and aware.
When was the last time you meditated? In addition, how is your prayer life? What is your journaling routine? All these things matter. It starts with self-reflection; doing the inner work to heal and grow.
Do the Work
Self-love is doing the inner work to learn, heal and grow. While others can’t see the work they will definitely feel it in your presence. You will control your peace in the presence of others. I do believe things like meditation, seeking therapy, and more can fall under both categories. The most important thing is to take care and love on yourself. Self love is not selfish it’s necessary.
What are you going to do for self-care or self love this week?
