Be a Stand-Up Person & Stand Up for Yourself Too


If you are the kind of person who will almost drop everything you’re doing to help another, remember it’s either your choice or your inborn ways that lead you to do so. When you do for others, make sure you’re doing with a happy heart; if you’re doing out of guilt or expectation, be aware that you might be neglecting your own responsibilities.

Through experience, I and others I know, have fallen off track from personal and professional duties by putting ‘self’ last.

Follow your gut and follow through with your intentions and promises but don’t lose yourself along the way.  If it’s a matter of who you are, don’t let it get out of hand. Learn to say no when you must, learn to let go when it’s time and realize that everything is not up to you to fix.

None of us must carry a burden alone. Do what you can. Be true to who you are. Don’t lose yourself to anyone for any reason.

Be kind to others but also be kind to yourself.

Always be your authentic self and learn not to apologize for who you are and what you are committed to do.

Breathe. Take a moment, reflect on where you are in your personal life and professional life. Recharge your plans, duties and goals.
