Priority, a difficult word for me and prioritizing myself first was never easy for me I always put the needs of others before my own. I always said “yes” when I really wanted to say “no.” I didn’t know how to emphasize myself without coming across as rude.
I lied to myself, about my feelings, saying I felt fine when I didn’t, and pretending not to care about rejections in life, always keeping a happy face for others. Many mornings, I did not bother to look myself in the mirror as I was disappointed in myself.
In the process of making myself priority I had to believe in myself and understand that without meeting my own needs, I would never be happy and best in any relationship.
I started with valuing my feelings and become more focus on my physical and mental health. The more I listened myself the more I become successful in taking decisions. Because it helped me to work on my self-esteem and eliminating negativity from my life.
The second change I made was surrounded myself with positive people, whose has a positive approach to life and made me feel worthy and boost my confidence.
In order to become the best versions of myself, I changed my perspective on life, filled my life with laughter and enjoyment. And there is no shame in prioritizing your happiness first.
