I have always been a people-pleaser, but now I'm ready to put myself first. I've heard that some religions, if not most, consider it to be selfish to put oneself first, but how is that right? If you are constantly putting others before yourself and you eventually burn out, then how is that helping yourself or anyone else? I believe that it is good to help others in need, especially if you can afford to, but there are a lot of people who are co-dependent and they never take care of their needs.

I believe its good to help others, but not good to continuously EXPECT others to take care of us.
If you are generous with helping others and you see they are benefitting from what you do, and than see some who are taking all the time but show no appreciation for what you have done cause they are expecting you should be the one taking care of them, than you are not selfish for not wanting to help them anymore.
We just have to always be aware of who benefits from what we offer and who is not.
