The Number One Priority Is Ourselves

The number one priority is ourselves. I feel guilt in saying this but I know that no-one else has or ever will put us at number one (or even equal) if we don’t. If we don’t look after ourselves first, no-one will, and we will perish. If we don’t look after ourselves first we cannot look after others. If we don’t feed ourselves, we cannot feed others. If we don’t love ourselves, we cannot love others.

Our first priority is always ourselves and then others. If we cannot look after our own basic needs first, we cannot look after the basic needs of others. One of those basic needs is self-determination or freedom, if we do not have that, we cannot help others attain it.

Of course looking after ourselves may mean working in a group so we can all attain what we need, but we are still all responsible for ourselves, each person working independently in the group to see what is needed and what they can provide.
