Remember to take care of yourself.
Don't beat yourself down over something you can't handle.
Remember to make time for yourself
To gather your thoughts and count your steps.
Remember to self advocate for yourself
Not too the extreme, but not so little that no one hears you.
Don't give others the satisfaction that they can somehow manipulate you to do what they want you to do
But don't turn your back on someone who needs your help
No matter who they are
No matter what they look like
No matter if you know the person or not
It's a crazy world
And by finding yourself before finding anyone else
It makes the world a little less crazy
A little less hectic
A little more organized
And again, by getting yourself in order, it makes it easier for others
So I suppose helping yourself also helps others
In that roundabout way.
