The great thing about realizing that it’s okay to be selfish is all the benefits that come with it when you truly embrace the concept. I think the word “selfish” always comes with a negative connotation and I have always disagreed with this. Being selfish is what allowed me to finally pursue things I never thought possible and not care what anybody else thought about my choices. Being selfish allowed me to focus on my physical and mental health more. Being selfish with my time and energy has allowed me to take a step back and realize what is important to me, who I am, what I want, and exactly what steps I need to take to get there. Being selfish made me realize who is worthy of my time and energy and who isn’t. There is nothing wrong with being selfish because nobody can take care of you like you can. Being selfish doesn’t mean the world revolves around you, but focusing on yourself can bring so much clarity. I definitely think everyone should take some quality time out for themselves because it can be life changing.
