“If I could sum up why I’m committed to the HR Girlfriends community it would come down to because we are ‘….in this together.'”

Affirmation: I take care of my own needs

Although I cherish my close friendships, being independent is important to me. To be independent is to feel a sense of autonomy, that I can be okay because of my own choices and efforts.

It is true that I have a lot of needs to fulfill. But it is also true that I ensure my needs are taken care of.

I am the master of my own life. It is invigorating and freeing to recognize that I have complete control over how I experience life. Because I am a strong person, I make my way and provide self-care however I see fit.

Although I have an independent nature, taking care of some of my needs might require asking others for assistance. When I know that I need help, I ask for it without hesitation. I am smart enough to realize when the input of others can assist me to achieve my goals.

Today, knowing I can take care of myself brings contentment to my life. Developing self-awareness about my capacity to take care of my own needs ensures I can continue to do so in the future.

My life is fulfilling and adventurous because I have the gumption to take care of me.

Self-Reflection Questions:
1. Do I take care of my own needs?
2. If I believe I require assistance in taking care of my needs, who do I depend on to help and why?
3. What are some steps I can take to ensure that I do everything possible to take care of myself and my own life?
