5. Become a Priority In Your Life
“When you say ‘yes’ to others, make sure you are not saying ‘no’ to yourself.” — Paolo Coelho
This is especially true for women. We give to our families, our children, our partners, our friends, parents, co-workers.
How many times have we said yes, because we want to help and please other people?
All of the time…or all of the time?
It has to stop.
You need to put yourself first in order to give to others.
The oxygen mask demonstration on the airplane are a perfect example of how to live. The mother puts on her oxygen mask FIRST, and then leans over to help her child.
You cannot pour from an empty cup and are useless to yourself and others if you are burnt out.
Love yourself first so that you love others.
