  1. I’m not a single mom, but sometimes I feel like I am. I work a full-time job and am an entrepreneur. I wear many hats inside and outside of my home. I struggle with self-care as well. I appreciate this article for showing the many ways one can exercise self-care. Saying no is self-care even if it disappoints or lets someone down. I really struggle with saying no even when it’s in my best interest to do so. So, thanks Alisha for this acknowledgment.

  2. Thank you for this message. It resonates with me as a care partner for my elderly mother.
