Trust is the foundation of any successful relationship, whether professionally or personally and when it’s broken, it is extremely hard to repair. I once had a supervisor if I was over one minute on my lunchtime, she would send an email to remind me of my lunch hours, even though most of the time I never took my full lunch hour. I couldn’t even send an email without her approving it first. She was so inflexible that it was overbearing. I couldn’t trust her.

Investing in yourself sounds like something you do when you’re living the life of luxury already, having hustled your head off in your younger years, but it absolutely isn’t. Investing in yourself is simply choosing to honor yourself, to give yourself the time and attention you deserve, and furthering yourself so that the next few weeks, months, and years run smoothly.
