take care of yourself

There’s no point running around taking care of others and attending to their needs while you neglect yourself. You need to be selfish and make sure you’re taking care of yourself first.

You need to focus on your own growth and development and serve your own needs first before you serve others’.

The best way to take care of others is to take care of yourself. As Jim Rohn teaches us, “The greatest gift you can give somebody is your own personal development. I used to say, “If you will take care of me, I will take care of you. “Now I say, I will take care of me for you, if you will take care of you for me.”

We need to let go of the guilt and self-judgment that we put ourselves through when we pay attention to our needs first. It’s more selfless to act selfish and put our happiness before others’.
