With school, work, social life and all the other responsibilities we have, we often forget to look after the person who has to do them all: ourselves. We get so caught up in the things we need to get done that we forget to take a break and make sure that we're alright and actually able to carry out all the things we have to do.
It's so important that we take care of ourselves spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally so that we don't overwork ourselves and start to become something or someone we don't recognize. It's important to complete all the things we have to get done but it's also important for us to have fun and enjoy the process while we're at it and we can only do that if we take care of our well-being. And if that means maybe dropping a few responsibilities, that just may be what you have you to do to make sure you're not being overworked.
Putting your energy into other things and other people is not at all a bad thing but when you put ALL your energy into that and don't save any for yourself, how will you have anything else to put into those things? You have to recharge and make sure you're in the best position to positively impact other people by remembering to take care of yourself.
