be a little selfish
August 20, 2007
If you sacrifice yourself hoping that others will reward you, you are only fooling yourself and setting up other people to disappoint you.
If you do not do what you need to do to make yourself happy, who should?
If you are not a happy person and are waiting for something to happen to make your life better, you will wait a long time.
Your job is to make your life happy.
There is something that you want to do that you can do right now.
Other people won’t think you are selfish.
Other people probably won’t even notice.
If they do notice, most likely they will envy you.
Besides, what do you owe anyone who argues with you for making yourself happy?
If someone is going to hate you no matter what you do, you might as well do whatever you want.
I am for myself so that I can be happy.
I am for myself so that I can give freely to others.
