Actor, RMD advises selfless people to make themselves priority
By Patricia Uyeh,
Veteran actor, Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD) took to Instagram to write some thought provoking post centered on selfless people who help others at the expense of themselves.
As the actor commended them for the good gestures, he told them to make time for themselves.
“I love people who love people. The kind, generous, nurturing type who go out of their way to do for others are without complaining or expecting a reward but the problem with people like this is the fact that they forget to take care of NUMBER 1.
“You may be the one in your family that everyone kind of depends on for direction, money, prayers, counsel, etc. Or you’re Admin for various WhatsApp groups trying to keep people together and in touch, or you’re the one constantly on the road attending ceremonies and events just to support others. You are a hero and I love you but the question is, When last did you stop to breathe and take care of yourself?
“YOU-ARE-NUMBER-1 and you matter, so take some time out to recalibrate. Stop putting off that spa day or the alone time when you shut the world off, order a meal, binge on your favourite TV show, get a massage, a pedicure, a manicure, read a book, just do something for you because YOU-ARE-NUMBER-1 and you count. Don’t succumb to the pressure of feeling bad for watching out for you because if NUMBER-1 dies, life would go on. To all the NUMBER-1’s in the world that keep giving, May God reward your labour of love and surpass your imaginations. God bless you.”
