After god, YOU are your first priority

One of the greatest blunders the world might teach us is about self-sacrifice. People often misunderstand this, thinking that loving others has become a duty that we often forget about our own welfare. We get past our lives feeling happy for others, yet, feel unfulfilled. But, let’s be real. Are we truly genuinely happy when we put others first?

You may say I’m selfish. But being selfish is not that bad at all sometimes. Remember, we only have one life to live. And everyone must know that, After God, YOU are your first priority.

One must not neglect self-love. Loving oneself, flaws and all is one of the biggest favors we can do for ourselves. Give yourself some love and consider practicing self-love. Here’s how:

1. Don’t settle for less.
2. Know that your value as far as God is concerned is far worth more than rubies.
3. Pay little attention to what others tell you.
4. Have a positive self-image.
5. Find happiness in the simple and little things.
6. Believe that you have been made in the image of God.
7. Love yourself unconditionally.
8. Go out there and find out what God has created you for.
9. Accept your flaws and imperfections.
10. Travel alone, figure yourself out.
11. Know who you are and focus on being good at what you do.
12. Try out things for the first time.
13. Respect and admire yourself.
14. Don’t strive for the approval of others.
15. Don’t depend on the compliments of others just to feel good about yourself.
16. Be kind to yourself, remember that God is continually shaping you.
17. See yourself as a winner.
18. Ask yourself if that’s what you deserve.
