7 – Make Self-Care a Priority
There is no other way to be a productive, helpful, loving and good person in your life if you cannot take care of yourself.
How can you help others and be strong for others if you are not helpful and strong to yourself?
How can you love others when you do not love yourself?
Put yourself first because when you can do that — you will be able to be an example for others as well.
Placing others before you is what gave the narcissist the idea they can do whatever they want to you because you will always put them above yourself.
