I make myself and my life a priority. In the past, I may have sacrificed myself too much while helping others. If helping others hurts me, I now realize that I am extending myself too far.
When I make myself a priority, I place myself in a better position to help others. Being good to myself is a way of being good to other people.
When I love myself, I benefit the people in my life. I can be a better friend, partner, spouse, employee, and parent when I love myself completely. I am more capable when I treat myself as I would treat someone I love.
If I fail to make myself a priority, who will? It is my responsibility to be my own best friend. My health, happiness, wealth, and future are in my hands. I choose to make myself a priority each day.
I avoid being overly selfish. I realize that other people are important, too. I help others when I am able. However, I ensure that I am looking out for myself, too.
Today, I put myself first in a healthy and responsible way. I say “no” to requests and activities that interfere too much with my life. I choose to love myself and make myself a priority.
