I used to be really bad about forgetting that I even existed. Sometimes I would just forget about myself because I was busy. Other times, I would purposefully keep myself so busy that I didn’t have any time to focus on what I was feeling. Neither of those behaviors are healthy and I accomplishes absolutely nothing by doing that. It wasn’t until I started becoming almost selfish that I really made progress in my recovery. What I think is interesting about what I just said is that I used the word “selfish”. I don’t actually think that I am/or ever was selfish, that’s just what society likes to call it when you take care of yourself before taking care of people. It’s not selfishness; it’s self-love.
