Self care is not selfish in the means that it is essential, it is necessary. Self care is not selfish in the means that we don't jeopardize areas of our lives in order to obtain our wants.
We've all probably experienced some form of silent treatment in our lives. It's so unnerving isn't it? The lies we tell ourselves when we're on the receiving end are pretty awful aren't they?

Vacation was successful all but that first night. It was a really rough night until 2 in the morning to be exact. I'm sure you can tell by my featured image that I was having a silent meltdown.
