The reason why you should practice gratitude, meditate, and take deep calming breaths is to take good care of yourself.
You are the reason you should be making good choices.
You are the number one person who is responsible for yourself.
Don’t expect anyone else to rescue you or look out for you more than you can do it yourself.
Of course there are people who love you and people that you love.
By taking good care of yourself you’re also showing love and concern for them as well, by not putting the responsibility of yourself on them.
When you take good care of yourself, you allow your loved ones to be free to simply love you, and receive your love as well.
