So many of us try so hard to please everyone without first taking care of the most important person in our lives- ourselves.  Maybe you feel obligated to put others before yourself (a people pleaser).  Maybe you genuinely enjoy seeing other people happy, which in turn makes you happy.  But if there are areas of your life that you need to improve to heighten your own happiness then it is important to attend to those needs first.  After all, a happier you will better serve everyone else.  Don’t neglect yourself; you are just as deserving of the positivity that you bring into others lives.  You are number one- now act like it.
