“As I mature I realize that I talk to myself more, I correct my own mistakes, I follow my own advice. Less people are around and that has allowed me to connect with myself. I’ve become one of my own best friends.”—(via iamdante)
I've spent a lot of time and energy helping others. Time and energy that I may never see again spent on those who never cared to begin with.
The exchange of energy is not always going to work in your favor. Learn to tame your ego and roll with the punches. In other words, get over the small losses and continue working on being great. After working on others so long, it feels good to finally be able to work on myself for the first time in my adult life. I am finally taking my own advice.
