You’ve heard it one too many times: “Stop being selfish!” You know you’re capable of being considerate.
It’s just that, when it comes to important decisions, you feel the need to protect your own interests.
I mean, if you don’t, who will, right? It’s complicated.
You want to be fair, but you’ve learned, somewhere along the way, not to let other people’s needs or wants eclipse your own.
It’s happened too many times growing up.
And now, you’re just fighting back.
Happily for all of us, it is possible to balance our selfish ways with more people-friendly behavior.
