SelfCare, SelfCaring, Your-SelfCare, and Your-SelfCaring, each always capitalized as shown

SelfCare (noun) denotes that part of each one of us whose job and interest is to take care of ourselves and our own self-interests and benefits, both for our Now and for our Next. Whenever wanting to indicate more specifically the SelfCare as that part of yourself or that part of another person, you can denote that part more clearly by using that person’s name in the word construction, as an example, Dwight-SelfCare or Dwight-SelfCaring, denoting my SelfCaring part. The word SelfCaring serves as both a noun and an adjective.

SelfCare and SelfCaring are in service to Oneself.

Your-SelfCare is used to denote your SelfCare, as distinct from anyone else's SelfCare and from the SelfCare that refers to everyone's SelfCare. 

Usage example: His SelfCare was reluctant to loan his friend $200. But his Service kept pushing him to be more generous.

Special note1: SelfCare, of course, derives from the regular English word self care. However, as used by this site, and by me, its denotation is more inclusive than self care. We normally use self-care to mean a more personal, body-oriented way of taking care of oneself, as in eating well, getting enough rest, or having a massage. The term SelfCare, however, while including all that, also includes anything else that could be considered to contribute to one's self-interest or self-benefit. For example, negotiating a good deal for oneself when buying a new car. 

Special note2: SelfCare and SelfCaring are replacing, for the most part, the words selfish and selfishness on this site. As a work in progress, this will take a while, groundbreaking as of February 2, 2021. In the meantime, when you hear or read the words selfish or selfishness, you may substitute the word SelfCaring.
