Self-Preservation is the first law of nature~Samuel Butler
As I have grown, I have learned the importance of self preservation and to me that’s putting God first, myself , then others.
Self preservation is the instinct to act in your own best interest to protect yourself and ensure survival. It is natural to think of yourself first.
I am a mother of one beautiful daughter, and I have always taught her the importance of self preservation. There is absolutely no way in this life you can be of any help to anyone if you don’t take care of yourself first.
To take care of yourself and put yourself first is not selfish, it’s mandatory. Self preservation is self love. Self preservation is self care. Self preservation is always the right thing to do.
Self care is not self indulgence it is self preservation-Unknown
If you can’t swim, how can you save someone from drowning? You have to always save yourself before you can be of help to anyone. I have drowned many times in this life saving others.
Always remember, taking care of others and making sure their needs and wants are met before yours will drain you dry and suck the life out of you. It will leave you with nothing if you allow it. It’s ok to tell people “no” . I’m a firm believer, if you tell someone no, you will really see how they feel about you.
It’s ok to do what’s best for you and not feel guilty. Be good to yourself.
