I felt so alone, and so confused. 'But I’ve paid my dues', I thought. 'I’ve made the effort. I’ve been giving. I’ve been giving! When is it my turn?'
And of course I didn’t realise what I now know about how to put myself first.
I’d attracted people into my life who were never going to be capable of giving back to me. They came into the relationship because I was so super helpful and so nice.
Wow, was that a wake-up call, and it probably came a lot later in my life then I wish it had.
So if you relate to that and you think, perhaps, I need to move me up the to-do list just a little bit, that maybe it’s my time to shine, that maybe it’s okay to put myself first, here's how to reclaim some time and start living life on your own terms.
