Last week wasn’t too bad when it comes to school and work life, but my personal life on the other hand, was a completely different story. I felt like no one was by my side and I only had myself. Everyone kept getting mad at me and I couldn’t do anything to make anyone happy. 

I had to step back and think about my priorities. Should I make them happy or should I make myself happy first? I was getting so distracted by how everyone else was feeling that I wasn’t even focusing on myself. No one was checking up on me so I had to check up on myself. I had to wake up every morning with a smile, ignore all the negativity, and make sure that I was gonna have a good day. I had to eat some breakfast, think positive thoughts, and walk with confidence. 

I couldn’t help but how other people felt. I could try to encourage them but if people aren’t willing to cheer up then that isn’t my problem. I had to put myself first because at the end of the day, I’m always gonna have myself to depend on.
