“For me, self-care and spirituality (and wellness more broadly) are very hard to remove from their political roots. I’m not sure that I would have embraced them had I not been abused, or not been from an immigrant background, or Queer, etc. These are tools that, traditionally, people sought because they have felt marginalized and didn’t have (or want) access to the same resources or treatment as other people. So I’d say their burgeoning popularity says something about the way more and more people are feeling disenfranchised or lost ... and embracing self-care and spirituality to be truly reflective and improve your situation (and that of others) is a valid response.” — @jericomandybur of @girlboss for @brit andco ⚪️
