Prioritizing yourself over others is important

You should be your top priority. We also mean that your time should be spent more for yourself and your development than for others. Sure, you can take care of family members when they are sick or they are in some trouble. Sure, you can help out a friend in times of need. However, you should limit your helpful acts. You should not live your entire life for someone else's sake no matter how much manipulative they are. There are many people in the world who will try to use you for their own good and give you the shorter end of the stick. Or maybe give you no stick at all. They are master manipulators and will make you feel bad for not helping them. You must stay wary of these types of people and get as far away from them as possible. The biggest damage that they will do to you is take away your time. We all have a limited time on this planet and it is passing every second. Even while I am typing out this article, time is passing for you and me and for everyone else. Every second we spend now brings us closer to death. So, don't live your life for other people. Improve yourself, grow yourself and love yourself. Do things for yourself and not for others. Like I said before, you sure can help some very close people out in times of dire need but don't help them out all the time. Don't help people or support them for little things. They are human beings too and unless they are paralyzed or have some disability, they can do simple daily tasks like traveling or fixing their car or writing their thesis.

Live your own life. Don't live someone else's life. Limit your time which you give to other people. The less time you give to other people the happier you will be. Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay

Steve Jobs once said, "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life." What a profound statement. He also never wasted time in trivial matters. Once a cop stopped him for speeding. The cop was taking his time in writing Jobs ticket when Jobs snapped and told him to hurry up because he had to be places. Truly he waited for no one and that was one of the reasons why he was so successful. So, next time when someone asks for your help for doing simple tasks tell them no. They are human being and if they are able bodies then they can do their tasks on your own. Don't waste your life and your time. Go build yourself a great livelihood or go do that thing you always wanted to do. Sure, you may be a little more lonely but it is better to be lonely than be surrounded by people who just want to take advantage of you.

Here is a little insightful video from Dr. Jordan Peterson about identifying psychopaths and manipulators in your life:
