Being selfish is good. I would say it is the best thing you can do to yourself.
You want to be healthy, be selfish about it. Wake up early, exercise, eat right and sleep at ease.
There is nothing wrong with being selfish.
But then there is another type of selfishness.
You do something that makes you happy but causes turmoils in other’s life. This is not a happy state to be.
There are many people who are trying to take away people’s property just for the sake of some money. They are selfish at the cost of someone’s happiness. They are not hurting the other person, they are indirectly hurting themselves. It’s just a matter of time. They don’t realise what they are losing by this. They are destroying their Karma.
There are parents who make decisions for their children thinking it is good for them but in-tern shatters their dream or breaks their hearts. This is being selfish but at the cost of their children’s happiness. They think they are doing it for good… but is it really good?
Well, very subjective.
But the majority of times it is wrong.
Because they look at the situation from their perspective whereas the person who is actually living the reality is someone else. The person living that situation is in the best place to make certain decisions and not otherwise. So, try not to interfere too much in someone’s decision making.
Just remember, being selfish is good if it is purely for yourself without negatively affecting anyone else.
Until next time.
