A lot of you probably thought it was a typo when I made this month “Selfish September.” But you read correctly. I figured “Selfless September” was too obvious. We all already know how great it is to help others. Most of us never take the time out to think about ourselves and what we want.
If you’re like me (young adult, single, childless) you don’t have anyone to tend to besides yourself. It’s so important to take advantage of the time you have to be selfish. Once you have a child or significant other you always have to think about how your actions could potentially affect them.
Go to that concert you’ve been dying to go to. Watch Netflix until you pass out. Invest in yourself. Learn new things. Make decisions that will make YOU happy. When you’re doing things to please others, it can be mentally and emotionally draining. So for your own well-being, be selfish while you still can!
