“When you say ‘yes’ to others, make sure you’re not saying ‘no’ to yourself.”
This quote by Brazilian songwriter and author Paulo Cohelo is very important to remember, especially when caring for loved ones.
Before we set out to make anyone else happy, we must make sure we’re happy.
That will allow us to spread more happiness to others.
It’s like they say on a plane, always put an oxygen mask on yourself before assisting others.
If we’re helping people grudgingly, the negativity could easily rub off with the help you give.
Be selfish every once in a while. Because you deserve it and are worth it as an individual.
