I have been taught all of my life to not be selfish. The problem is, I am quite selfish. I think we all are. At the core of your selfishness – you find your SELF. To not be selfish is to not be you.
But at a point in your development – when you’re secure enough in your self – you can own your selfishness. And in owning your selfishness, you are then able to not be so —– selfish.
