Choose Respect through Self-Care
Webster's Dictionary defines respect as having high regard or esteem for someone. We often think of respect in relation to how we view others but don't always take the same approach to ourselves. This self-care challenge is designed to help each of us take time to show ourselves the respect we deserve and remember that we matter. Join Kodiak Women's Resource and Crisis Center (KWRCC) and Healthy Kodiak in developing these self-care skills this March.
