I’m not sure how we forget that we are just as important as everyone else in our lives who we are so good at serving. Most of the people who vie for our attention can be very good at asking for what they want. If you have children, for example, they won’t let you forget that they expect to eat five times a day. Similarly, the community organization in which you help out in your “free time” is never shy about reminding you that there are many critical needs. Unfortunately, there generally won’t be anyone speaking up on our behalf if we aren’t tuned in to our own internal voice reminding us that we have needs too.
