A common stereotype among women criteria is that a woman will always sacrifice herself in order to please others. But cherishing yourself and putting yourself first is not wrong, in fact it’s mandatory, it is by doing so that you will be at ease on helping and cherishing others. Jenna Marbles said ” There’s only one of you, you are the only you that there is. You are the most majestic and rare you that there ever was and ever will be ”
You can not save others if you do not do the same for yourself first! Cherishing yourself will help you satisfy yourself, reach self-esteem, and happiness which will lead you to be more involved into helping others.
Remember that the people you love love you as well! Your mother, father, siblings, best friend or any other person who truly love you, won’t be upset to seeing you prioritizing yourself and you won’t mind either if they do the same!
Create healthy boundaries. Understand your limits and let your entourage know this is not a selfish thing to do! It’s honorable and you show respect for yourself and others.
Taking time for yourself serves everyone around you.
