For a long time, we’ve been taught that it’s not okay to put ourselves first. We’re supposed to put others before ourselves, and only then will we be happy. But what if that’s not true? What if taking care of ourselves is the key to happiness? When we’re always focused on others, we run the risk of becoming burnt out. We can’t take care of others if we’re not taking care of ourselves. It’s okay to take a break, to focus on ourselves for a while. You’re not being selfish, you’re being human.
Mary Ella Hunt’s debut single, Need A Minute, is relevant in today’s society because it encourages people to take a step back and assess their thoughts and feelings. We’re constantly on the go, but we rarely take the time to reflect on what’s going on inside of us. The song can be a reminder to slow down and really think about what we’re going through. It can be tough to do this, but it’s absolutely necessary in order to make positive changes in our lives.
