Being Selfish was something I struggled with for a while. I used to take on the needs of others, and end up neglecting myself. My time, energy, and money were going into anything and everything. I would always go above and beyond for others and receive little in return which is very draining. While I was taking care of others my self-care gauge was definitely working well past the empty sign. I had to take a step back and realize it’s okay to support and uplift others, HOWEVER, I cannot pour from an empty cup. I had to get me together. Remember you pay yourself first, not just financially, but also mentally, and emotionally. Learning how to put myself first is what inspired me to write my first book, 26 & Selfish.
When was the last time you truly did something for you? I mean something that you truly want to do, that does not include feeling pressured to spend time with friends, family, or a spouse. I’m talking true honest Self-time where you clear your mind and are doing something that excites, and liberates you. Something that makes you happy, something that brings you peace. In today’s world, it is so easy to get caught up in any and everything such as work, other people’s drama, social media, etc. It is important that you make time for Self. With anything else we do in life it’s important to pour into your self; feed your mind, body, and soul.
