There are lots of comments on here about the importance of self-care, being kind to oneself, self-forgiveness, understanding and working with some of the ways we push ourselves to the point of illness.
I wondered if people would like to share the names of books or writers they've found helpful.
I've been reading Thomas Moore's Care of the Soul which I found both baffling and brilliantly inspiring. Although baffled more often than inspired, the inspiration did keep me reading until my partner demanded her book back.
Hope we are all having good days.
