@Ali11 mentioned in another thread how that self care is not really about spoiling ones self and I agree, it is about respecting ones self.  Extending these respect basics towards ourselves enables us to better care for our loved ones.

Our healthy eating began to counter side effects of Mr Darcy's medication. Now I am doing it for myself.
