“Save yourself before you save the world”
There is only you that will be with you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and for the rest of your life. You therefore owe it to yourself to put YOU first. We are socially conditioned to believe that putting yourself first is selfish. However, have you ever considered that if you don’t put yourself first, then that is actually selfish? The fact is, if you are happy and fulfilled then the people closest to you will feel happier. You will be more positive and nicer to be around. Consider the analogy of an aircraft when in the safety briefing you are told that if oxygen levels drop and your masks drop down, you should put your own on first before helping others. If you can breathe, you will have the strength to help save and enhance the lives of others.
