There comes a point in life where we find that we don’t prioritize ourselves enough. You may not even realize it but the people around you, even the closest ones can inhibit you from reaching your goals. Some who have admitted this happening to them have felt like they were the “side kick” and came second to the people that they did more for than themselves.
Situations like these can happen between best friends, work, family, spouses/boyfriends and girlfriends and more. One person will give their all to the other person or group, or whatever it may be, and at the end of the day, that person will have no time left for themselves.
So, when this happens, is being selfish all that bad? No. If you’re selfish enough, you have finally put yourself first, rather than whoever else it may be. Without doing this, you can become “second in your own life” (Rose Highwell) when in reality, you should come first 99% of the time.
There are a ton of other awesome ways how becoming more independent and putting yourself first can improve your life, check out the story below to see them.:
