Taking care of yourself first should always be your number one priority. I made this a topic because I know there are some people that feel the necessity to put others before themselves. At the end of the day you must realize that you have to make sure you are satisfied with the way you are living. Taking care of someone else’s wants, and needs before your own will not benefit you. Only time this is appropriate is when it is a must, when there is no other way to do it you must take care of that persons Needs. Just be sure you are helping yourself feel good and make sure you get the things you want out of life, because no one else is living your life for you. After you feel you’ve met your needs and wants, than invest in others especially when it comes to relationships. Don’t let your partner fool you into thinking that they are more important than you. Things should be mutual and have a balance in order for the relationship to function. If you make one more important than the other than, this only makes things worse because you might have a selfish partner that doesn’t like to give back. If that’s the case, you will just be looking and feeling dumb about things because you invested so much without getting anything in return. The whole point of I’m trying to get at is Live your best life, first because no one else is gonna live it for you.
