    Self Care Thursday *potential triggers*

    Thursday is Self Care day on the DWD Facebook page and I thought it might be helpful to copy over some of the posts to the forum. Hope they help

    This really touched me. So many people I care about constantly berate themselves for what they perceive as failures. It really is OK to need to take a moment and to climb your mountains in your own time.

    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    I promise I won’t inundate you with lots of posts all at once but just one more (as Sunday is definitely ‘cuddle up on the sofa, watching feel good movies’ day)

    Sometimes, all I can do when in crisis is plonk myself in front of the TV and watch back to back movies. My absolute favourite, and one that I’ll happily watch over and over again, is Pretty Woman. There’s some great films on this list, but what’s on your ‘self care’ list?
    30 movies to watch when depressed

    This chart is fab! Lots of ideas for self care. I particularly love ‘compliment someone and watch their face light up’. It reminds me that self care doesn’t always have to be something nice happening to me, being nice to someone else can give me just as much of a buzz 🥰 x

    I have so many self care pictures and posts I could use on the fb page, and not enough weeks in the year to use them. So I might occasionally put up a few that don’t get posted on fb. One of these is
