Who Cares For Me? 

I worry. I am anxious. I stress.

I care. 

I care about those around me, I worry about those around me and I try to be the best person, friend and confidant I can be. That’s who I am and that’s never going to change. Why? Because I care too much. 

But where does caring about everyone else get me? What about me? Why don’t I care about me, my health, my body, my mind, even my feelings?

I seem to have somewhere along this journey, forced myself to take a back seat from actually worrying and caring about myself. Is it a bad thing? Yes and no. I am never going to stop being the person I am. I won’t ever stop caring, because it’s not in my nature. But I am going to have to learn to start caring for myself. Start worrying about myself and put myself firmly back in the drivers seat.

  • I’m going to take time out regularly, do what I want to do.
  • I won’t be bullied in to doing things any more. 
  • I’m not going to explain myself or feel guilty for any decisions I make that are in my best interests. 
  • I am going to start listening to my body. I have to. 
  • I’m going to cut out all negativity, and focus on only the positive things in life. 
  • I’m going to read more. 
  • I’m going to learn more. 
  • I’m going to spend time doing the things I love to do. 
  • I’m going to spend time with my husband, my dogs, my cats, and be happy.
  • I’m going to break away when I need it. 
  • I’m going to be happy. 
  • I am going to make time for ME. 

I’m only going to get one chance at this life, there is no rewind, pause or delete button, so I have to do my upmost to make my life the best it can be. 

I have to start looking after myself, and actually giving a damn about myself. I have to care about myself and the rest of my life. I cant sit on the side lines any more and just hope for the best, I have to take control.

I have to care. 

I have to care about me.

  1. I found this incredibly relatable, Kat! I have recently been finding that when you are always “the supportive friend” who everyone depends on, your own worries and feelings can get forgotten. People can just assume that you’re doing ok and don’t even think to ask, because you always put others before yourself. I think that you’re making a really powerful change here by reclaiming some time for yourself – you absolutely do deserve to be in the driving seat of your own life and do what makes YOU happy! You are just as important as anyone else in your life. I love the quote that you’ve included too: “You can do anything but not everything.” I think I need to bear that in mind as well! Lots of love for you, your strength is something that I really admire.

    1. Thank you so much for this lovely comment Abbey. I hate that I have forgotten about myself in this life, not that I don’t like and love to care for everyone else, but some times I need a reminder that I need to look after myself too, and my healt h is my reminder. xx

  3. This is a great list. Your list of ways your going to take care of yourself is a great reminder to the rest of us to take the time to care for ourselves. We can’t be at our best, if we don’t take some time to focus on ourselves. Take care 🙂

  4. YES!!! SWEAR I could’ve wrote this today.💜❤🙏

    Done apologizing to people who will NEVER, “Get It”until THEY get sick!

    Just can’t, won’t, explain all of my health issues inside and out to a deaf, judge mental ear.

    Focusing on my breathing, children and husband. Staying calm and finding happiness through all of the pain that’s trying to upset my wellbeing.

    Thank you for such a beautiful message that helps bring us back down to mindfulness!
