Be Selfish

self care

Most of us are brought up to be generous and considerate. We give to our jobs, to our romantic relationships, to our friends, parents, and children. We even give to strangers who may be less fortunate, and social and political causes. After all that giving, what do we have left? Did we remember to keep something for ourselves? We all need to give a little to ourselves and when denying ourselves those things that make us feel good can drain us in the long run. We should never feel guilty about keeping a part of ourselves for ourselves.

Why not give yourself permission to do something for you? Treat yourself to something that makes you happy and fulfilled. Go on be a little selfish.
