Have you ever felt overwhelmed with work, school, your relationships, family, friends, and business? Are you busy with helping your sister or girlfriend with her problems? Are you busy with driving around your best guy friend? Are you busy just doing nothing with your life? You never find time for yourself. Well join the club. As individuals, we tend to put everything and everyone before us. We put our families, the job, and our mates before us and we tend to leave ourselves last. As if we don’t matter, I am hear to tell you that you do matter!There are so many painful experiences that can lead to a severe breakdown. When you constantly focus on all the things that don’t make you feel whole. When you don’t focus on your true inner self. You will begin to feel it physically, emotionally and spiritually.
I have a few friends who always put every single person they know ahead of them. They never focus on their career, their goals, their health or any type of aspiration. I tell them all the time, you have to focus on “YOU.” They all say the same thing, I know, I know. If you know, then why won’t you. They say everybody needs them. I told them NO everybody is taking advantage of you, even their families, coworkers, bosses and even our own children from teenagers through young adults. They walk all over them. When my friends and Associates tell me that they are exhausted. I tell them that they need a wake up call or a reality check.One of my Associates had a stroke, one had a mental breakdown, the other was in a abusive relationship and another tried to commit suicide. Many people are in estranged marriages that developed some unworthy feelings of low self-esteem, self pity, self doubt and no self love. I was astonished of what was happening to my friends. They felt as if they never had a voice in this world except for over the phone. They realized that they needed to make some major changes in their life. Trust me it was coming sooner than they anticipated. When it finally happened, they had no recollection that it would come to this point and it was affecting their health. Now my friends don’t know what else to do with their life.
Let me tell you, when you start to feel unworthy, depressed, suicidal, negative thoughts can creep in. You have to take control and learn how to contribute to pain and frustration. You as an individual have to get up, stand up, grow up and open up your soul. You have to take responsibility for your own actions. And when you don’t, It causes major health and mental issues. We have to learn how to get back on track and find out what fuels our fire.Here are few things that can help you get back on track with your life. When you are feeling down and out, depressed and stressed, unloved and unworthy. Take some time out to get to know YOU and harness your own personal power!!!
