Are you guilty of ’should-ing’ on yourself? Or it’s close cousin, ‘canning’ yourself?
*I should be able to figure out my self-care without any help.
*I should be able to see as many clients as my colleagues and not feel burned out.
*I shouldn’t have to spend money to learn how to address my self-care.
*I can manage without taking breaks.
*I can figure things out on my own.
*I can’t afford to take time out of my schedule to work on me or what might improve my well-being.
‘Should-ing’ on ourselves doesn’t feel particularly good, and yet we do it all the time.
Taking a mindful moment to connect with our wiser selves, here’s the actual truth:
*We all need help at times to get our self-care on track. And, self-care is so much more effective in a community of support.
*We each have a different tolerance for clinical work, and this can change from season to season. (especially when the season is COVID)
*Improving our self-care is one of the most valuable ways to spend our hard-earned money.
*No one can manage without taking breaks. (And we actually perform better when we take breaks.)
*It’s way more fun to figure things out with others.
*We can’t afford NOT to take time out of our schedule to work on ourselves. WE ARE our best tools.
