Is this self care?

Is this self care is a playable twine adventure which explores whether self care is pushing yourself more or letting yourself rest

Sometimes self care is allowing yourself space. Allowing yourself to rest and recharge and giving yourself permission to let go of some of your many expectations of yourself. 

Sometimes self care is pushing yourself to do something you don’t want to do because doing that thing will ultimately help you.

Sometimes it’s hard to tell. Is this self care? is an exploration of that difficulty. It can be used in the midst of self-doubt and anxiety – or in preparation for it. 

Although Is this self care is a short playthrough I hope you’ll find it fun and/or useful. I know that making it has helped me a lot so far!
