We often fail to realise our own importance in our lives. We cherish our family and our close friends, but seldom do we cherish ourselves. Our contribution towards our development along this journey rarely gets the desired credit. The people we meet during our journey, and our experiences with them, leave an indelible mark on our psyches. We evolve into better versions of ourselves thanks to those experiences, to those people, but, do we realise that it’s our own efforts due to which we metamorphose into what we were destined to be?
We always depend on others for our happiness, seldom realising that it’s us on whom our happiness depends! We will be living with ourselves for the rest of our lives, not people, who never last throughout this journey! Shouldn’t we care for our own wellbeing than rely on others for the same?
So today, I make a promise to myself to love and care for myself, be considerate towards myself, treat myself with kindness, the sort I deserve. Be more forgiving, and accepting, of my shortcomings, knowing fully well that no one here is ‘perfect’. Of course, my dear ones will always hold a place of prominence in my life, but, I will position myself on top of my priority list. People will come into my life and move away, but I will always be here – with me, for me. Taking care of myself is therefore a necessity, isn’t it?
