If you are or have been in a mentally and emotionally abusive relationship with a toxic narcissist, you can probably identify with the idea of forgetting to take care of yourself. I mean, if we’re being real here, we note that probably everyone has had this experience at one time or another – especially those with children.
But this is a different kind of “forgetting to take care of yourself,” one that becomes chronic and causes you to almost literally cross yourself off your own priority list. And when that happens? No good can come of it.
I have coaching clients, SPAN members, readers and YouTube viewers tell me every day that they find that they’ve forgotten how to take care of themselves. Some have even said they have to remind themselves to stop and eat, to shower and even to sleep.
I’ve been there – and I thought maybe if I shared a bit of my own experience, it could help you to get back on track. So let me tell you a story.
After you watch the video, let me know: what do you do to remember to take care of yourself? Do you need to take better care of YOU? What can you do today to take care of yourself better? Share your thoughts and experiences below.
