Have you ever found yourself saying or thinking “What about me?  When do I get a go?” and immediately felt guilty?
If being kind, helpful and caring towards others is a natural part of who you are, but you find it hard to do something kind for yourself, this book is for you.
This book shows you why and how to value your life and take responsibility for your own happiness, how to use your existing skills of kindness and unconditional support to embrace the power of self care.
Using the analogy of a map, you will learn how to walk steadily away from the lands of Exhaustion Hollow and the historic Shire of “Should,” avoiding Depression Swamp and Passive- Aggressive Trap, skirting Martyr Mountain Range, navigating the stumbling boulders of Anger Volcano, Go Round Again Circuit, Asking for Help Rockface and Beating Oneself up Bushlands, and spend your life in The Heartlands, balancing self care with caring for others.
The book promises no “Magical Secrets,” instead you will find straightforward practical principles, pragmatic suggestions based on experience, examples, worksheets and clearly defined, achievable steps to take.
If you know that it’s time to stop neglecting your own needs, become happier and more truly helpful and supportive to others then this book will help you get there.

Review : Self Care isn't Selfish has helped me to take the time to care about myself, usually the last person I think about. I now realise how much better I am at caring for others if I take the time to care for myself first.
