A good investment

Sometimes we invest too much time, support and love in other people, before we invest it in ourselves. We wait, ready for our investments to pay out. We hope that our value increases in the process, but we won’t really know; it’s all just speculation.

Putting in time and effort to help a friend is not categorically-speaking a bad investment, but what if it’s to the detriment of our own interests and wellbeing? Sometimes we have to be selfish, and look after ourselves before anyone else.

When posed with a choice, we must question what makes a good investment.

  1. I definitely see where you’re coming from. Sometimes we try so hard to make others happy that we make ourselves miserable.

      It happens more often that you’d think.

      1. Yeah…I know. It’s quite unfortunate.
