There are many reasons to put yourself first.

When you first begin to think on this concept, it can sound and feel really selfish.

I think one reason for that is that many of us have become so accustomed to doing for others that we forget about ourselves.

Doing for others is a wonderful thing, but there are many reasons to put yourself first.

1. Only You Know What You Need

The truth is, only you know what you really need.

This is one of the best reasons to put yourself first.

No one can meet your needs like you can because only you truly know what you need.

You are most in touch with what you think and what you feel.2

Sometimes it is best to just meet your own needs rather than sit around hoping someone else will notice them.

2. You Will Have More to Give

When you put yourself first, you will find that you actually have more to give.

When you are depleted of everything physically, mentally, emotionally and every other way, you should not be surprised that you have nothing left to give to others.

You have to take care of yourself so you can take care of others.

Most giving people know how to meet their own needs.2

Think of the most giving person you know and see if this doesn’t hold true.

3. You Will Be a Better You

When you take care to meet your own needs, you are going to be a better you.

You are going to be much more pleasant to be around.

Someone who is completely exhausted and empty in every way is not a fun person to be with.

Actually, taking care of yourself is one of the kindest things that you can do.

It will make you a much better person.
