The “Care” in “Self Care”


After I wrote the item “do something nice for a friend” – because being a good friend and having good friends is important to me. I completed the pair with the item, “do something nice for myself”. A secondary thought, but still, a thought.

This understanding started reading Burnout (a book that affected me so profoundly I have lost track of the number of women I have bought it for). Burnout is a symptom of the patriarchy.

I wonder where that conclusion comes from (not that I think she’s wrong). Guess I should read Burnout… 🤔
