When you come back to common sense.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
One year later, this tag comes back. It makes me think it’s more important than ever. Let’s see why. I wonder if you really need an explanation of the reasoning behind the fact that self-care is important. Like last year, I won’t focus on the physical aspect of the concept, but rather the psychological aspect. The mind leads the body. If it doesn’t, the body will act irrationally and unpredictably. Let me point out two very different examples.
Two people attract each other. Passion burns in them and between them. They will want only one thing, that nothing interrupts this combustion, that it can burn intensely. Without the mind being able to moderate the course of things, there will be passion, but there might also be mistakes. The mind, the killjoy, will “disturb” the situation, but what would happen if it didn’t?
Taken from a real fact. A parent in a poor mental state is driving on the highway with their children in the back seat. In a moment of weakness, they steer the wheel in a flash of madness wishing to end their suffering by bringing their treasures with them. They changed their mind in a fraction of a second and tried to repair their mistake, but to no avail. Rollover followed by a violent awakening. The person’s mind, faced with so much intensity, and already weakened, decides to bow out and leaves to take refuge we know where. Left to themselves, this person falls into an irrational state and the end of the story ends with three deaths, including two infanticides.
Taking care of yourself is, above all, asking for help. Without the strength to do so, transparency is the best option to let those around us detect our state of health. Our strength of mind is what sets us apart as a human being.
