"When one has lived so much for others it is quite hard to turn oneself back again - to live for oneself."

So very, very true. And so succinctly put.

Somewhere in the middle of living for others, or for someone else, you forget yourself, and in consequence you forget what it means to live for yourself. Actually, I think it is more complex than this, I guess.
