It’s easy to prioritize everything else besides yourself. You have responsibilities after all. Schedules to keep. Jobs to do. Deadlines to meet. People to support.
Those things take time and energy. There just isn’t always enough left over for you after you’ve taken care of your other responsibilities.
Which raises an interesting question: Where are you on your list of responsibilities?
If you’re not high enough on your own priority list — or for some of you, not on it at all — that’s an issue. It’s not a time issue. It’s not an energy issue. It’s a decision-making issue.
Choosing to put yourself at or near the top of your priority list isn’t selfish. It’s responsible.
