Look After Yourself Friday

Having a long healthy, and happy life is a goal we all must have!

Here’s the thing we don’t know what tomorrow brings, and whether you like it or not, we all have an expiration date. So while I’m here, I want to own my days.

There were times in my life that I scooted by with hopes of living my best, but today I am living the best I can. I’m not saying I’m my best self, but I’m better than yesterday and on a steady climb.

Looking back and stepping forward

No one knows it all or how to get through life without making mistakes. But we do know what makes us feel like we are respected and loved. Looking back, I mistakenly thought my friendship or love was mutually unconditional. But, unbeknownst to me, there were underline conditions. 

I should have seen them, and I know I’m not the only one who didn’t look after themselves to ensure the relationship/friendship/respect was mutually supported.

Never be someone’s second choice.

There are various things you can be in life; however, one of them can include being anyone’s second choice. Once shown that you are not valuable and respected, you should head towards the door and look after yourself by ensuring the door is fully closed. Then to further ensure that the door remains shut, you need to look at the pattern this person exhibits. 

I’m sure you are not the first person this individual tried to burn. So don’t take it personally. Just protect yourself by moving on.

The revenge is not yours… karma is a bitch, and every jackass will meet her at one time or another. 

So don’t you concern yourself with trying to get even or allowing anyone to live rent-free in your mind. The best thing you can do is make sure you are living in a way that will offer you a long healthy, and happy life. Therefore if you haven’t started taking care of yourself, then today is the perfect day to begin LOOKING AFTER YOURSELF!

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

  1. I have had to do this several times. It’s not easy but you are right, it is the best thing to do. I can look back now and see that leaving was definitely the right choice. Hope you are having a good day. Hi from New Zealand
