My life is not selfish, it is full of self

Your life is your own, so make choices that best serve you.

What a concept! This might sound selfish, but selfish is not the correct word as selfishness has deeply rooted negative connotations that attach itself to this word. Mainly the idea that being concerned about one’s self always comes at the cost of someone else.

Instead of thinking about the act of choice that involves your best interests as selfish, think about it as taking care of yourself and knowing thyself. Make choices that embody self-care, self-respect, and self-love.


When we make choices that honor our selves, than we are on the right path. In this current world we have so many people throwing advice at us, shaped from their own experiences and choices mostly, and that’s great. But we have to use a filter when we hear and read others’ stories, we have to digest this information in a way that makes sense to us alone, and we have to decide what would best serve us.

This concept does not mean that we do not care about other people. First and foremost we must learn and love taking care of ourselves because without love starting from within we will never be able to truly love other people.

We should not have to rely on others to find happiness. We should not need our workplace to satisfy our needs. We should not seek happiness in anything outside of ourselves – we should seek it within and then joy will flow in and around us!!
