Do it for yourself! | 4

Make your own happiness a priority
Your needs matter.  If you don’t value yourself, look out for yourself, and stick up for yourself, you’re sabotaging yourself.  Remember, it IS possible to take care of your own needs while simultaneously caring for those around you. And once your needs are met, you will likely be far more capable of helping those who need you most.

For the long run, we have to take care of and value ourselves. This can sometimes be hard to fit in during daily life with e.g taking care of children and others needs. But we cannot be inspirational to others if we haven´t got anything to give. So it is essential to look after yourself and make you happy. First. Then you can spread that happiness and really influence someone else.
