Why is self care so much work?!

I love Esma, I really do. She's like my soul sister. I have a job in the service industry as the front end staff for the local humane society. I love it at work. It's quiet and the cats don't talk back. I know what I'm supposed to accomplish, and when I'm done I can [...]
