Not my place

It seems everybody is thirsty, and always looking to me for a drink. I have poured so much into the lives of others, that I’ve almost emptied myself. It’s one thing to be nice, but it’s another to allow yourself to be taken complete advantage of. However, I only did it, because I didn’t want to be seen as the bad guy. Now, I don’t care what I look like to them. I’m always preaching self-care and putting oneself first, yet I’m the worst to practice it. No matter what I do, I’ve somehow managed to be last, but it’s only because I put myself there, even though it’s not my place!

It’s time to put yourself first. Everyone else comes after!

Until next time my NOTE takers!
