Many times we as human beings give so much of ourselves and our hearts to others, yet we give so little to ourselves. Isn’t loving another more better than loving yourself?
Think of it like this: when you’re on an airplane, they give you a quick lesson in safety. If there’s an emergency, they tell you to place your mask on first & then place the mask of the person / child you’re with. Why is that you ask? Because you can do more if you take care of yourself first! If you’re out of oxygen, you have the inability to effectively help the person next to you.
That’s why it’s important to take care of yourself first! Only then, will you be able to take care of anyone else.
Love works the exact same way! It’s only when we love ourselves first, we can truly & effectively love another!
