“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”—Audre Lorde
Even the greatest among us must remember to take some time for relaxation, a necessary component of self-care. Stepping back and taking a breath does not show weakness; rather, it shows your intelligence and wisdom to let another take the reigns. Furthermore, it shows your strength by allowing someone else to have temporary leadership. This holiday weekend sit back and relax. Let someone else take charge. And, most importantly, take care of you.
