Things to Stop Doing to Yourself – #4

Each day for the month of December, I’ll be posting one of Marc and Angel’s “30 Things to Stop Doing to Yourself” with a little commentary from yours truly.

4) Stop putting your own needs on the back burner. – The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.  Yes, help others; but help yourself too.  If there was ever a moment to follow your passion and do something that matters to you, that moment is now.

If I’ve learned anything from failed relationships in the past, it’s to be a little selfish.  Not completely selfish, but you still have to do the things in life that you both want and need to do.  If the other person truly cares about you, they will understand when you need to “do your own thing”.
