We need to change the narrative that motherhood is all about sacrifice. Here’s a new narrative: You can’t show up for your kids unless you show up for yourself. This week, Dr. Becky hears from three parents who struggle with self-care in different ways. She explores why this is such a common challenge for people, and how to approach each struggle with compassionate curiosity. You’ll leave this episode with thoughtful questions to consider about your relationship to your own needs and practical strategies to start fulfilling them. Remember, two things are true: You can take care of the people around you *and* take care of yourself.
