I stopped saying yes to everyone, and it changed my life.

Sunday 19:05 GMT

From the way I move, to where I go, to the extra work I’m constantly taking on, I keep placing my life right behind everyone else's.

During my 30 days, I kept coming back to one singular question: What makes me special enough to put my own well-being in front of everyone else's? Every acclamation of self-care curtains my insides with a narcissistic feeling; I am constantly wondering if my inability to compromise when I have a headache or feel super tired is making me a terrible person.
