She also examines how varying life stages—such as career demands, motherhood, or personal transitions—can impact the ability to maintain and nurture friendships. By addressing these issues head-on, Alicia provides strategies to overcome these barriers, encouraging a supportive and thriving sisterhood where women can connect more deeply and support each other more effectively.

    Affirmations: Use affirmations to elevate your sisterhood energy.

    Self-Love versus Self-Care

    Self-Love versus Self-Care

    In today’s episode, “Self-Love versus Self-Care,” I want to expand on a conversation started during a virtual reading of my book, The Journey Back to Self. During the event, I touched on the difference between self-love and self-care because sometimes the terms are confused. This episode explores the two terms further.
    Key takeaways include:
    Self-love is valuing, accepting, and caring for yourself unconditionally.
    Self-care refers to intentional actions and practices that promote mental, physical, spiritual, and relational health.
    Self-love and self-care are closely related concepts but have distinct meanings and practices.
    Self-love involves how we think, feel, and act toward ourselves.
    Self-care practice does not automatically equate to a deep level of self-love.
    Improving self-love can ignite a greater commitment and consistency to self-care practices.
    Help from a licensed mental health provider can be helpful for those wanting to enhance their self-love and self-care.
    To explore these topics deeper and unlock your inner peace, power, and prosperity, purchase Alicia Caldwell’s transformational book, The Journey Back to Self, at www.aliciacaldwell.org.  Join the journey today!
