Hello everyone and welcome to my blog at this hour. It is a new month and it's a beautiful Sunday - so, happy new month and happy Sunday to you. It is my greatest wish for you this new month that all your dreams and aspiration come to pass. This brings me to the question of today - who should we put first? Ourselves or other people? Well, sit back, relax and enjoy all that I have packaged for your reading pleasure.
The answer to putting oneself first or placing other people as priority will differ from person to person because it will depend on how you feel, the current situation or circumstances and above all your previous experiences in life.
Sometimes we feel like we are in this world alone and no matter how much we cry, shout or yell, no one will come to our aid. The times we panic that we need a soothing voice to tell us everything will be alright, there was no one there for us.
In the same vein, we have friends, neighbors, relatives, colleagues and so on that also go through tough times and are not stable in their finances, relationships and suffer from depression, anxiety and pain but they don't know who to turn to.
Someone close to you is also experiencing some of the issues that you are experiencing and at this point who do you pay more attention to? Is it yourself? Or you try to get the person out of their pain and sadness and try to understand how to get yourself sorted out during the process?
EVERYONE GOES THROUGH ONE KIND OF CHALLENGE IN LIFE BUT THE DEGREE OF EACH PERSON'S VARIES.
If you refuse to give a friend a loan when they come asking they will feel bad and even get angry with you and call you stingy and heartless not knowing you truly don't have the money or you have plans for the cash you have in your possession. They would not understand that you are also in a tight situation.
People choose to see you the way they want to and not the way you really are. They might perceive you to have a lot of money because you dress well and not understand you manage the resources at your disposal well.
That's their own truth. That's what they created in their heads. That's their opinion about you and different people would have different opinions.
But, who should we put first? Should we go in line with their truth about us?
