Listen…life is nuts maintenant, but guess who is thankful to be working towards something!
So, I am really good at extending myself to things that do not serve me and I’m good at holding on to relationships for longer than I need to. These are my confessions.
I am also a magnet for people who need a hug and a friend, but sometimes maintaining relationships with people who are in repair can be draining, and I don’t think that it’s selfish to put yourself first sometimes. So, I’ve lived by the following rules for the past few months:
Will the world end if I don’t attend?
Is it going to cause me stress and a very large mess?
Am I going to have to talk through my feelings afterwards?
Is it worth it to get the short end of the stick all the time or should you care for yourself?
GIRL, IF YOU DON’T PUT YOURSELF FIRST!
Of course it’s easier said than done, but it’s so much easier done once said. You’re more inclined to do the things you speak about. No more putting everyone else’s feelings before yours. Who’s going to take care of you? Your needs come first because you wake up and lay down with yourself every day. Put yourself first and protect your peace, honey!
