Please be Selfish

We live in a society that judges selfishness yet it is the very thing needed to help heal ourselves.

I am not referring to self - absorption where you only care for yourself at the detriment of others. By selfish I am referring to taking care of yourself first so that you are able to give to others from a place of self - love and care. The opposite extreme to self - absorption is selfless - ness. This is where we are so busy taking care of everyone else we put ourselves last leading to burn out, guilt, resentment and never feeling good enough.

Putting yourself and your needs first, loving yourself enough to take care of yourself so that you are fueled by love, joy and peace as you take care of others is not selfish it is vital to living a healthy life...

So go ahead, today say no and do something for yourself first. Love yourself first. Be selfish.
