Selfish is defined as : (of a person, action, or motive) lacking consideration for others; concerned chiefly with one’s own personal profit or pleasure.
Now some may look at this and think that It is not ok or it is a terrible trait. But right here right now, I am here to tell you that ITS OK!! Its ok to be selfish when it comes to being who/what you need to be as a person, to accomplish your goals; and to grow.
And if you still dont understand, It is my pleasure to break it down for you:
- You CANNOT take everyone If anyone at all with you on your journey.
Its impossible to be able to grow and mature If you are still dragging along the same negative energy (people). Not everyone wants to see you be great and do better in life. If they are stuck in life, then why cant you be? Then there Is alot of people the want to see you BUILD just to use you. So you leave those people behind and think of only you. Sometimes Its just things you have to do on your own. Your journey ain’t meant for everybody else. What he has for you is only for you.
2. This is how you BUILD “your place of peace”.
Your “place of peace” is you foundation, strength, and healing place (mentally). It’s ok to BUILD this place just for you. This is how you make sure your place of peace is unbreakable and unmoved. Every negative energy and trials will just bounce off of you and you just keep it moving. Just stride in confidence, unbothered and at peace.
3. Nobody is going to have your back like you.
Of course we all have family and friends that loves us to the moon. Or you can very well be the person that do not have anyone at all. But Its ok, nobody else is going to have and hold you down like you are. They did not suffer through the trials with you, hurt, cried and gave up with you. When you felt defeated, you were on your own. This alone will push you.
SO YOU SEE, ITS OK TO BE SELFISH!!
I THINK IT BUILDS CHARACTER!!
