Hello!! I wanted to come by and share one of my life goals with you all!!
Learn to put yourself first. It’s a phrase that sounds simple, but can be one of the most difficult things you could do. If you are used to always making sure the ones you love are taken care of before yourself, then that is a good characteristic to have, but it can also be your downfall.
There is nothing wrong with doing what you can, but it should not consume your life, or get in the way of things of your goals and ambitions. Sometimes taking care of others can have you passing up opportunities that could have been very beneficial to you and your future.
I always put my family first no matter what. There were opportunities that I passed up on since my senior year of high school. In college there were somethings that I weren’t able to do and get to make sure that my family had what they need. Making sure that my family was okay however left me without more times than I can count. It has and is still taking me a while to understand that I have to eventually start putting myself first. The opportunities that I could have taken years ago by now would have really paid off for me and my family, and now I’m sitting here regretting not given them a shot.
Please learn to put yourself first for a change. Some people may not like it, but you only have one life to live, and if you spend your whole life doing and giving to others I promise you will regret everything that you passed up, and may possibly resent the one(s) that you passed them up for.
