For thousands of years, social and religious conditioning has encouraged us to always put others first. This has clouded the issue of self-care. After all, there are billions of people, so if you put others first, who will take care of you? Since age-old conditioning has emphasized caring for others, even at the expense of your own well-being, this book seeks to rebalance the "self versus other" dilemma by championing equal rights for self-care. Taking care of yourself doesn't mean you must handle everything yourself without help. Taking care of yourself simply means that you are responsible for yourself, including asking for help when you need it. The human heart will never be satisfied with caring only for the self. You can trust that if you take good care of yourself, you will naturally want to care for others. "Dr. Cat's Helping Handbook" is a beautifully designed, warmly personal, and easy-to-read guide with 55 in-depth chapters and 500-plus margin quotations by people from all over the world. The book's message is simple: Be compassionate with yourself and take good care of yourself. If you do, it will be the best gift you can give yourself, humanity, and the planet. Praise for "Dr. Cat's Helping Handbook": "Dr. Cat's Helping Handbook is a treasure. Its carefully gathered quotes alone make the book worth having. Cat has created a work of truth, power, and beauty." —Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom" "Dr. Cat's Helping Handbook is a valuable resource for those who seek to build stronger and more respectful relationships with themselves, others, and the world. I heartily recommend Cat's warm and openhearted style and the way she treats readers as partners on the path of personal growth." —Laura Davis, author of "The Courage to Heal"
