I think the word ‘Selfish’ is thrown around a lot nowadays as a bad thing, yes it can mean being unkind to another person and that isn’t good. But I think it’s important to remember the true meaning of the word selfish, to look out for yourself and look after yourself, which is definitely something we should be doing!!
Most of the time I find myself agreeing to do things I don’t really want to do because I don’t like saying no, but that’s not fair on me, I’m letting myself down! Have you ever not wanted to do something or go somewhere but gone along with it because you feel obliged to? did you spend the entire time thinking of what you could be doing and how you wish you weren’t there? Next time say no! (*Obviously there are times when you shouldn’t say no, your grandma’s birthday party being one of them!*)
Remember to treat yourself with the same respect you treat others, and demand that they treat you with the same respect! Being Selfish is a good thing!
