“Always give from the overflow of your well, not from its depth.”
– Sufi saying
It’s easier to be kind and giving to others if you’ve taken care of your own needs first. It’s a lot harder to be compassionate and friendly if you don’t show yourself those same courtesies.
That means that it’s OK to say “No” sometimes. Why is that so hard?
I think it’s because as women, we’re conditioned to put the needs of others ahead of our own. We have this innate desire to please everyone.
Truth is, that isn’t always possible.
Your own needs are also important. If you’re not willing to look out for yourself, who will?
So, do yourself a favour, and do something extra special for yourself today with no guilt.
