We often jump at the opportunity to help others before working on ourselves. It’s difficult to face our own problems. Plus, it feels good to know that we have acted selflessly by helping someone else.
But if we give too much of ourselves, we’ll be left with nothing. And we cannot expect others to take care of us just because we try to take care of them. There are many people out there who will take advantage of us.
When it comes down to it, we’re responsible for our own happiness. We need to make sure we are both physically and mentally healthy. The more we ignore our own needs, the worse off we’ll be. And if we are unhappy with ourselves, we’ll have no happiness to share with others.
New Music by Ed Sheeran – “Save Myself”
This is a beautiful and honest song by Ed Sheeran from his new album. We should all learn to put ourselves first a little more before allowing people to walk all over us.
