Just 14 Funny Tweets About Getting Your Self-Care On

Self-care is a bit of a struggle because the people who need it the most have time for it the least. That’s right, I’m looking at YOU, parents!

The funny thing about self-care is that it means different things for different folks. For some people it’s a trip to the spa, but for others it’s pissing with the door closed and drinking a cup of coffee before it’s room temperature. CAN YOU IMAGINE?

They tell us that self-care is important and that it’s pretty much imperative to our mental health. However, the honest truth is that most of us are severely self-care deprived. Calgon, take us away! Sweep us away to the land of no more whining kids and bullshit into a sweet, sweet oasis of coconut-scented solitude. Actually, I’ll take any solitude at this point. It doesn’t need to be scented at all.

I’d love to indulge in more self-care. Starting with some time away from my kids. Followed up by some baked goods, a murder documentary and a deep dive into the comment thread of a very controversial meme. Ahhh. Feel that? The soothing embrace of relaxation and doing sweet fuck all.

If you don’t get enough self-care, you’re not alone!

The truth is, most of us don’t. This is why the concept of self-care has become the punchline of many hilarious jokes. Because sadly, the concept of getting a few moments of time for yourself is probably the most laughable concept of modern adulthood.

That’s ok, at least we have laughter.
