I talked about this a little on Instagram. We as women (at least the women I know) tend to sacrifice for others. I’ve noticed in myself the tendancy to think I’m sacrificing for others when in reality, I’m just neglecting to take care of myself.
I’ve been wearing the same stained sweatpants since I was pregnant with baby 1. I haven’t bought myself a decent item of clothing in over two years. It’s not that we can’t afford it – we can. I just have some kind of subconscious idea that not buying things for myself means I’m sacrificing for bigger things.
Lately I’ve noticed that I’m unhappy everytime we’re going somewhere other than the store – because I’m not exaggerating when I say I have nothing to wear. I own one pair of jeans that I bought for $2 at the thrift store. All this to say, I’ve finally decided to give myself permission to spend money on myself. I need clothes.
So if you’re like me and you need that extra push to spend money on yourself… this is me telling you, go on girl you deserve it. 😉
