Self care and caring for others
When it comes to taking care of the people in your life, have you put yourself at the bottom of the priority list? You're not alone. It's easy to forget to take care of ourselves and, sometimes, it's easier to avoid dealing with whatever ails us emotionally or physically because it's just too painful. Instead, it feels better to turn our attention to the people who we think need us most: our children, partners, parents, relatives and friends. True, you may be needed, and true, you may be willing to give, but at some point, you deserve to be in the No. 1 slot. Not because it's good to be selfish, but because it's good for you.
