Learning To Put Myself First

We all live such busy lives, I mean let’s be honest even when we are at home we are still doing things, whether it is social media, working, blogging like me, workouts, doing house work, attempting to have a social life, you name it we don’t actually put ourselves first. We all need to learn to sometimes, however, I’m the kind of person that will think I’m super selfish to even do that. I mean what if people need me, what if this, what if  that, to be honest I will always find an excuse to not put myself first.

I have to admit, sitting here saying oh I’m gonna put myself first is hard, because it isn’t that easy, we say we are gonna do it but in reality it doesn’t happen does it? It’s such an important thing to do, but you need to remember is how can you be there for others when you’re not being selfish enough to put yourself first! That is kind of one of the reasons I’ve pulled back on social media a little bit, not because I want to but because I actually have to for my own well being.

Social media is literally like a bubble, and I love the blogging community but it’s got to a little bit of a negative point lately and that makes me so sad because it is such a beautiful community to be part of! So because of that negativity I have pulled back, I have learned to focus on myself, and my mental health because I really need it for me.

There is a fine line between putting yourself first and being selfish, but it’s important to make sure that you’re making yourself happy.

I’m not selfish.

I’m doing this for me.

Learn to say no to things.

I really don’t want to get to the point where I’m burning out.

Don’t do things to please others, your main priority should be you.

Let go of people who hurt you and upset you because they’re the people you don’t need in your life.

You deserve happiness, be selfish sometimes, remind yourself that you’re worth all the time in the world and it’s important to do what is best for you in your life.
