One Of The Most Important Investments You Can Make

One of the most important investments you can make

A substantial amount of my energy used to be spent on nurturing relationships with others. I would consistently call my friends, send them text messages and plan meet-ups with them. As well as, tend to the needs of a boyfriend, and make sure that my family was taken care of financially.

More times than not, I felt unfulfilled in my life because I had consistently given so much to others, but I wasn’t always treated well by those who I did the most for.

Eventually, I came to the realization that to make any type of relationship work well, it must be reciprocal. There has to be give-and-take from all parties involved, in order for the relationship to be healthy.

There have been moments where, several months have gone by, before I would hear back from some “friends” who were doing perfectly fine. They didn’t really care about what was going on in my life. They had only contacted me for some type of favor. And there have been instances, where family members have asked for financial assistance from me, which I obliged. But in return, these family members were no where to be found when I needed their help.

For all these reasons, I have learned to invest in myself more. It is the source of my greatest happiness. I tend to my own needs first, before giving myself to others.

Because if you don’t invest in things that add more value to your life, then there will always be people who will have you invest in things that make their lives better, whether it is through your time, energy or wallet.

So be mindful of the sacrifices that you make for individuals. Your efforts won’t always yield the best outcomes.

How do you invest in yourself?
