This. This right here.
I’ve always been the type to put other peoples needs/wants before my own…whether it be with family members or friends or romantic partners. I simply enjoy making someone happy and giving them a reason to smile or laugh, both if I’m lucky. I want their happiness so much because it makes me happy knowing I’m making someone happy.
But I forget that while I’m sacrificing and compromising all of what i actually want.. Who is bending over backwards for my happiness? I don’t even want anyone to break their backs… Not for me.
But I want someone to meet me half way and sometimes meet me all the way. I want to be able to have my way once in a while… And then I learned… I can have all that I want if I started putting myself first and starred giving myself the attention I was giving other people. :)
