9 Steps to Taking Care of Yourself

Tell yourself that you do matter

Be extra nice to yourself

Be patient with yourself

Invest in yourself. Follow your dreams

Recognize when you are in problems over your head 

Say no to situations or people that you know could trigger you in a negative way 

Think about things that happened in the past, and learn from them so you don't repeat the same pattern

Focus forward. Self-care means moving ahead, not looking back

Be proud of yourself. Declare victory when things go well.
