Be Selfish. That’s right, make yourself happy first. If you are not happy then you will not be able to go anywhere or do anything to improve your situation. You need to make your happiness a number one priority in your life before you attempt to reach your goals.
A demanding job, a needy spouse, whining children, a helpless friend, a barking dog, endless laundry, and the list goes on. When is it your turn? You could only give so much before you have nothing left to give. When you’re bankrupt of yourself life takes on a downward spiral and it’s very hard to climb back up.
Your happiness depends on you. When you are not happpy and you stay unhappy you are robbing yourself of becoming the person you are meant to be. The goals you set in your life will never be achieved if you just go unhappily through the motions of daily living. You want to reach that star of success then you need to make sure you are happy.
It’s time to for you to take command of what you deserve; your happiness. You need to recognize when enough is enough and that may involve you speaking up and saying no when others are requesting more out of you. Take charge of the happiness wheel and steer it towards the things that make you happy. Even if everyone else is telling you that you shouldn’t. Bottom line is that only you have the right to know what makes you happy.
Selfishness gets a bad rap but unselfishness is just as equally bad, especially for you. When you give and give to others without giving to yourself your health, happiness, and overall wellness is at risk. You have the right to take a break and you are entitled to say no when you feel you are spent and you need a break from giving. When you take a stand and become selfish you are telling yourself that you are worthy and you deserve to be happy. When you say no to others you are saying yes to yourself and that is okay.
Be selfish, be happy, be succesful. You deserve it all.
