Take care of yourself first. I’ve always been the kind of person that took care of others before myself. I love caring and doing things for people, but I never thought of my needs. When I look at the woman I am now, I realized how much I was missing. I was in so much pain trying to make everyone but myself happy (especially family.) It never occurred to me how much I can accomplish if I focused on not just what I want, but more importantly, what I need in life. I have struggled from many things I cannot mention, but I seeked help and improved my healthy lifestyle. Since then, I have not been this happy in my entire life. I found a sense of relief.
Remove yourself from toxic situations. Fuck negativity, that doesn’t get you anywhere. Try to be positive in any situation. Do things that make you happy. This literally changed my life.
