“If you don’t like me, remember that it’s mind over matter. I don’t mind and you don’t matter.” - Dr. Seuss
I have the most random epiphanies ever. I had one about ‘the self’ today. All my life I’ve been a very selfless person, and I pride myself on being the person that puts others before myself. It may not seem so because upfront I am a very emotionless person. Call me Stonewall, you will never know how I truly feel. Regardless, I show how much I care through my actions. I despised selfish people big time, self-centered people who put themselves before everyone. I never understood how you could care so much about yourself. Then it dawned on me DUN DUN DUNNNN *dramatic music* being selfish isn’t THAT awful. Essentially it’s how you apply it. When you think about it, who is going to put YOU first if you don’t? If you don’t want to think of yourself as being a selfish person, think of it as you being selfless towards yourself. All that time you put into caring about others can also be put into caring about yourself. What comes around goes around, karma, right? You can’t truly love someone else if you don’t love yourself. Give yourself love and you can give others love too, get it? Long story short don’t forget yourself in the shadows. You’re important too. The sooner you realize it the sooner you become a Selfless Gawd.
