Self-Care and Self-Interest

posted in: Uncategorised | 0

Back in January of 2017, in our blog, The Line Between Self Interest and Selfishness, we took a look at the advice Polonius (from Shakespeare’s Hamlet), gave to his son, ‘to thine own self be true.’ As the blog explained:

‘There are many interpretations of this particular sentiment. But, cutting a long story short, one of them suggests that, in telling his son to be ‘True’ to himself, Polonius meant ‘beneficial.’ In other words, a person is best placed to take care of others only when they’ve first taken care of themselves.’
