Story: Taking care of yourself


The shoemaker lived in a large village and was the only shoemaker in town, so he had the job of fixing all the other people’s boots. However, he did not have time to adjust his boots. This was not a problem at first, but in time, his boots began to disintegrate and split up.

While working warmly on everyone else’s boots, her feet got blisters and she began to limp. His customers began to worry about him, but he reassured them that everything was fine.

A few years later, however, the rower’s legs became so badly damaged that he could no longer work and the man’s shoes had not been repaired. As a result, the whole town soon began to limp in pain, all because the shoemaker did not take the time to get his boots ready.


This simple principle is often overlooked. If you do not take care of yourself, after a while you will no longer have the right to another person. Your good intentions will mean nothing and you will not be able to do what you set out to do.

This is done by professionals, staff, leaders, social workers, teachers and even parents.

If you do not take the time to care for yourself, no one else will.

Do you take care of yourself?

Have a good time ahead and kindly take care of your health FIRST, only then will you be able to help others.

Self-care is not self-reliance, it is self-defense… !!!
