Is putting yourself last, always the best thing to do?

Please justify your answer.
If yes, why?, if no, why not?
Thank you.

In life...you should be first with a "go get em' " attitude. In danger...It should be women and children first and save yourself last, that's if you are male that is.

You should always put yourself first.

No, putting yourself last is not always the best the thing to do, but I understand where your coming from. Like a father would put his kids first, but in most cases you put yourself first.

Putting your self last is NOT always the best thing to do. Something's might be more important to you than yourself, and that is when they come first. Any other time you need to put yourself first, otherwise you might end up being walked over for your tendency of putting others before you, when it's not always necessary.
I hope this helps,

Yes Or no. (m confused).
I feel lost in life because I try to please everybody, essentially throwing my own values and desires out the window. Talking to friends, family and my girlfriend is uncomfortable because I’m constantly trying to appease them

Putting yourself last is never the best thing. While you will have to make sacrifices at times for those you love you should never put yourself last. It is unfair to you and drains plus if you really want to consider those close to you, how much of you do you have left to help them if you keep doing that?

Goody
It's more self gratifying
To put others before your self, and a terrific example of " human "
But" don't be taken advantage of,
And for why- refer to cj's answer

I don't really think so. I think if a person NEEDS something and you WANT something, then you should put their need first. But you have to put your own needs before the needs of others sometimes. You have to help yourself before you try helping someone else. For example, why try to help someone with confidence if you don't have any?

It all depends on why and how often its done. Always putting yourself last is not taking care of yourself, and if you don't take care of oneself you won't be healthy enough to care for someone else either physically or mentally. So most of the time look out for number one, you. After you, then consider others. Might be selfish outlook, but the world can be a horrible place and if you put others before you you may come out worse off. But pretty much it depends on the person and situation.

I think it depends on what the situation is. Although it is important to put your family and friends first, sometimes you have to put yourself first. If they really love you, they'll understand. :o

Why would you even consider putting yourself last?Trust me no one will appreciate it.If you want to help others first you have to be well and happy in order to be able to help others period.
