What do we owe ourselves?

I have been thinking hard about what I should do for me. What do I owe myself? Everyday we help each other out in dealing with our problems. We give advice freely based off of our own experiences. It is easy to give someone advice when you are not emotionally invested in their situation. When it comes to ourselves, what do we do? As I look at my life, I realize that I do not give myself the same regard as I give to others. I always come last. My needs are not as important as someone else’s. That is the lie I have told myself all these years. My question is, why am I not important? Why do you not see yourself as important? I think this is a common thing we all do. It is easy to give advice to someone if we don’t have to feel the pain and the consequences of those decisions. Feelings are hard to circumvent. You can’t, you have to deal with them. There is no other way around it. We can’t forget ourselves for the sake of not being important or for the abandonment of dealing with our emotions. Life is hard. Life is worth it. If you knew you were going to die in two months, what would you try to accomplish? When we think we are going to die or run out of chances, we live and see life differently. We suddenly forget about money. It doesn’t matter anymore and we try to get experiences. I have written before that the only thing we truly own are our actions. Our actions follow us to the next life. Our experiences are ours. Make the most of your life. Travel. See the world. Love your kids. Hug them and kiss them. You do matter. If you don’t respect yourself, why should anyone else? I totally get it is easier said than done!
