Are You Living For You …Or Living for Others?….


Can you honestly say at this point in your life you have truly lived for you? Or have you been living for others? Some of us live to please others such as our family, friends, spouse, children etc…. There’s nothing wrong with including others or doing for others a times. But living for others, what do you really get from that? What’s are the Pro’s. cause we all definitely have lived through the Con’s of it. Me myself, I can honestly admit I haven’t been living for me but for everybody else. I’ve been selfish to me. Sounds crazy but it’s true. I’ve neglected Myself my whole life trying to make everybody else happy, trying to get everyone’s approval or to prove to others that I’m actually doing this thing called “life” as best as I can. At this point I realized that if I keep this up nothing will work out for me and my life. Not my goals , not my relationship, not my relationships with my family and most importantly my own happiness. There comes a point in life where you will come to realize whether or not you’ve been doing this the right way or the wrong way.  I know now it’s not everybody else’s life it’s MINE!! I have to appreciate life, my life because it’s mine to live. Took me a while and that’s alright. There’s nothing wrong with including and doing for others but we have to distinguish between the two. Put yourself first because if you don’t you teach others to put you second. Are You Living for You…Or Living For Others?….

    1. I have the same thoughts at times to be honest. I know we want the best for the people we love, but what about ourselves? We love ourselves just as much or if not more than others so why can’t we just live for us. I mean it is our life right?
