I Am Selfish & You Should Be Too

I am selfish.⠀

Although I hate the word, “selfish”, and the many sh*tty people I associate with it...to be selfish AND mindful of others is the way that we DESERVE to live life. ⠀

Forget what you know about the word “selfish” and tell yourself this: “My life isn’t meant to be lived pleasing others at every moment. My life is meant to be lived the way that I want to because it's MINE.”⠀

“As long as I’m kind and respectful of others, it is always ok for me to be selfish by making my OWN needs a priority too. Period.”⠀

This is still something I work on each day. If you’re not in this mindset yet, I’m not 100% there either and that’s ok. It’s something to work towards because bottom line: Being selfish is not always a bad thing; It’s something we deserve.⠀
