Choosing yourself first over everything is the best decision a person could ever make in this today life. People go through a lot of pressures from families and friends on how they should live their lives and how they should think about others before making decisions that affects their lives. Being in married doesn’t mean that a person should become a slave and not be able to leave because of what people will say about you leaving your marriage as they don’t know what you are going through in your marriage. “Choose yourself, your happiness and your future before everything else.”
