Don’t be afraid to put yourself first.
It’s okay to selfish sometimes.

Putting yourself first gives you the confidence you need to succeed in life – telling yourself that you are worth more than what you see in the mirror is powerful. Telling yourself every day that you are kind, smart, beautiful, and talented will give you the confidence you need to say no to things and people that drain you, and yes to the opportunities that make your stronger.
