Your needs matter. If you don’t value yourself, look out for yourself, and stick up for yourself, you’re sabotaging yourself. Remember, it IS possible to take care of your own needs while simultaneously caring for those around you. And once your needs are met, you will likely be far more capable of helping those who need you most.
“Books are doors that lead you into the street. With them you learn, educate yourself, travel, dream, imagine, live other lives and multiply yours by one thousand.”—Arturo Perez-Reverte, La Reina del Sur (via quote-book)
