Believing That Self-Neglect Will Bring Love
Many internalizers subconsciously believe that neglecting oneself is a sign of being a good person. When self-absorbed parents make excessive claims on their children’s energy and attention, they teach them that self-sacrifice is the worthiest ideal—a message that internalizing children are likely to take very seriously. These children don’t realize that their self-sacrifice has been pushed to unhealthy levels due to their parents’ self-centeredness.

Take a Minute, It's The Little Things That Matter | Opinion
Nowadays, it seems like 24 hours just isn't enough time to complete tasks anymore. For instance, I used to wake up at about 5 am, run out the door at 5:20 am then start my 1.5-hour commute to my current construction site in Fort Lee, NJ.
