In the end,
it's only you that can make the change,
and only you that can take care of you.

You are your shoulder to cry on,
the one to dry your eyes,
to fight your battles
and end your wars.

You are the one that makes sure you eat,
the one that wakes you up every day,
gets you to work and back
and pays your bills.

And only you have the final say in decisions,
only you can change yourself,
get rid of and keep what you want,
and say yes or no.

You come first and foremost.
Fulfill your own needs first,
make sure everything is sound,
and be sure to give yourself whatever you need.
You've been working hard,
you deserve to be a little selfish
once in a while.

But it's you and only you
that truly keeps you going.
Don't forget that.
:la: I wrote something, are y'all proud of me uwu

Self-care isn't selfish. Everyone needs to hear this. How can we help anyone else if we cannot help ourselves?

Well done, and well said. And if we don't have full control on our life, we do have control on quite a portion of it, and most of all on our attitudes.

And are we really in control of our lives in any way? Sounds like wishful thinking to me.

For the most part, yeah :la:

Sometimes you just have to make it about oneself! I like the theme of this.
Although I don't know or not if this was intentional "You're been working hard"
Was the you're supposed to be You've?
