Self Care Quotes – Quotes about the Enneagram and Caring for Yourself
One of the big take aways when going thru the Enneagram that I am not sure everyone grasps, is that learning about yourself is self care. Self care to everyone of us looks different.
Care for Yourself
For me, learning self care all started as a silly free online quiz – then processing from doing a self Enneagram test . I’ve totally been spending the last year engaging in what each type means, who am I and what can I learn from all of this. For me, this type of self care, knowing who I am has been everything.
Understanding who you are, why you are you, how certain situations trigger or excite, how to interact with others and learning why others are the way they are – these are all self care and when studying the Enneagram these are what you learn!
