This year will be the year I put myself first


CEBU CITY, Philippines— Dear self, this year you will start putting yourself first.

Yes. This year, stop putting yourself on the sides and feel like an option.

This year, this are the things you are going to avoid doing.


You will no longer beg for anything from someone or from a situation. You will learn to live by with your decisions and respect theirs even if it hurts like hell. No more begging.

Not asking for help

Gone are the years when people who ask for help are called weak. This year, you will start asking the right kind of help to better yourself, your decisions, and your way of life.

Be an option

Let them know that choosing you first hand is the right thing to do. Make the necessary moves and adjustments to be the choice and not an option.


If they want to go, let them go. Cry if you must, but don’t chase. Them leaving will be a blessing in disguise you’ll surely be thankful for in the future.

Break your peace

This time you will protect your peace by not allowing anything or anyone to break it. Protect it like your life depends on it.

Make this year your year. No more taking the backseat. Step up and own your game.
