It’s hard to admit your selfishness. Everyone has a little bit of that inside of them. But you shouldn’t burry it, instead, you should prosper in it. Be ok with being selfish at times. But I think there’s an art to it…because the last think you want to be is ignorant.
Are you one of those people who don’t like sharing their food unless you’re completely full?!
Know what you want. Just because you know what you want, doesn’t mean you know it all. It’s alright to express your wants and needs. There’s a inner voice in you that helps me make decisions right away, and you shouldn’t burry that voice.
“Treat others the way you wanted to be treated”. The reason why this quote isn’t so golden anymore is because this doesn’t always happen. You should be able to distinguish who deserves your time. Time is a valuable thing, and just because you took the time to do something for someone, you’ll realize that they won’t do the same for you.
Don’t be arrogant, but be stern. There’s a fine line between selfishness and arrogance. The main thing is, if you’re doing something to genuinely hurt someone, then that’s considered arrogant.
Just because you give majority of the time, doesn’t mean you have to give all the time. It’s amazing how people overly provide for their loved ones, but when the time comes where they can’t provide, they’re automatically seen as selfish. So whose really selfish at that point? Just know that your way of giving might not fulfill another persons expectations..
With expectations being said, you should know that we live with them. We all live with expectations, and thats mainly the reason why we feel hurt when we don’t get what we want. It’s ok to have expectations, and it’s alright to be selfish within our expectations…but don’t go off if things don’t go your way.
Finally, it’s ok to be selfish. People will always put labels on others. And if you build up a perception of being a selfish person…be ok with that! You work hard! And you shouldn’t settle for what you don’t think you deserve. And if you are truly a selfish person, and people know that, then you probably no longer would have to deal with sharing your food or having someone borrow your things because they’ll know to back off 😉. Always be in tuned with who you are, even if some of those things are bad traits. And if you want to fix that later on, then do so! But never hide your true self because you’ll eat yourself up.
