Take good care of yourself

It’s wonderful that you’re so good to others. Always remember to be just as good to yourself as well.

Compromising your own well being does not benefit anyone else. It is when you are satisfied with yourself, confident in yourself, that you can benefit those around you.

When you wish to give, you first must have something of value to offer. If you seek to be of service to anyone else you must take good care of yourself.

Get your work done, indulge some small but important desires. Then you’re able to give your full attention and genuine care to those you love, and to many others.

Yes, it is a challenge to take care of yourself and to balance that with your care for others. It is not a challenge to be ignored or avoided.

If you want your life to matter to others it must matter to you. Take good care of yourself, and give life the best you have to offer.

— Ralph Marston
