I try to take good care of myself. I was never very good at it. It took me years to realize that I was not good to myself. I put myself down. I ignored physical symptoms of illness. I overate.
When I take good care of myself now, I still fight that inner voice that says I am just being selfish.
But I have learned. I have learned that it is good to be good to myself. That it is good to take care of myself, to see me as someone of value and worth. It is good to treat myself as my own best friend. I try to see me as I know God sees me. I am a child of God. I need to remember to be good to me.
