Social connection or rather relationship is an essential part of our existence and certainly something we will not be able to avoid. It is fair enough to give some time to build a relationship that you share with your family, and friends but the core point to remember is, you are still an individual. To discover yourself is a big challenge, so it is important for you to focus on yourself first before you turn your focus on others.

  1. You will learn to find comfort in solitude. 

Socializing can be a fun thing to do, all the chit chats and laughter can boost your mood, and make you feel better about yourself. Also having friends, makes you feel important and cared but it is wise to understand that external factors will fade away with time hence it is important to feel genuine contentment from within you. It is important for you to take some time off, prioritize yourself and learn about yourself in depth. This means, at times you will need to take a break from your busy lifestyle and spend a good quality of time on yourself ; paying attention to little details of your likes and dislikes, spending time doing things that makes you happy. When you are truly comfortable and happy in your own solitary, you will eventually become a happy person in any situation.

2.  You will get more things figured.

It is no surprise that family or friends can impact our decision making skills. This happens as we are open with emotions with them because we trust them, which eventually making our mind to believe that they know us better than we do hence their advices should be apt for the situation. That is totally the opposite. No one knows yourself better than yourself – in short, you know the answers to your questions. Prioritizing yourself will help you to know what you really want vs what is good for you. Life is all about the choices but there isn’t any rules that you will need to play it safe – all the time. It is okay to take some risk and explore the path unknown. Most of the time, these are the choices that will help you to grow as an individual.

3. You will learn how to protect yourself. 

Making yourself as the most important person in your life, will help the process of removing the negativities in your life, much easier. You will find the need to remove toxic people, things or anything that is hindering your growth as an individual. Taking out everything that is negative in your life will eventually help you to lead a life that is veiled only with positivity. This not only impacts your present but also allows you to reflect on your past ; eventually creating an open space for the decisions that you will take in the future.

4. Grow as a person – spiritually, mentally and physically. 

It is important for you to know that growing as a person isn’t a phase – it is a continual process till your final twitch. And to grow, you will need to learn about yourself in a depth – to understand what you, as an individual, want in life. When you realize your true potential, the choices made then after will only shape you into a wiser person.

Self care is important. And you need to believe it is one of the most essential aspects in your life. Don’t feel guilty to put yourself first ; to give your body and mind what it really need. Or rather want. When you start paying attention to yourself, many impossible things will disentangle – and you will live a peaceful life.

I have always been interested in writing since my high school days - my first blog was started in 2009 and was kept hidden for almost 2 years. One day, I decide to come out of my shell and I've been in great abundance since then with great support systems around me. I am currently completing my Professional Certificate in Counselling and would like to pursue in Special Education for Children. I love sharing and I thought what's the better way than to write about it? I added a pinch of Photography with the idea of producing genuine contents from my point of view.

  3. Thanks for the words. Indeed, sometime we do need to put ourselves above others. Not making ourselves selfish, just yeah, prioritizing what’s more important.

  6. Yes, totally agree with you. End of the day, we are the one going to stay with ourself forever. So self priority very important. If we don’t, who else going to do that for ourself.

  7. I agree with your thought! Everything we do we need to focus for our self first rather than other. When you’re not a priority, you simply don’t function at your best and your ability to contribute to the world is compromised

  8. Totally agree. For me, in whatever situation / relationship, we must prioritize ourself or at least do not put top priority to other people. Just because we treasure the relationship, doesn’t mean we should care less about ourself.
