It’s ok to be a little selfish

mandy hale selfish quote

The very connotations surrounding the definition of ‘selfish’ are negative: “lacking consideration for other people; concerned chiefly with one’s own personal profit or pleasure”. But sometimes the only way we can ever become selfless is through being selfish. If we do not pursue our own passions, if we cannot be ourselves, if we do not take care of ourselves – if we are basically empty inside – then what do we have to offer and give each other? When we follow our own ideas, we bring new perspectives into the world. When we learn to be ourselves, we inspire confidence in others. When we understand how to make ourselves happy, we radiate happiness into the world. By being a little selfish once in a while, the world will blossom.
