One look and I can't catch my breath
Two souls into one flesh
When you're not next to me
I'm incomplete
••• Cause I'm on fire like a thousand suns
I couldn't put it out even if I wanted to
These flames tonight
Look into my eyes and say you want me, too
Like I want you
•••
Oh, love, let me see inside your heart
All the cracks and broken parts
The shadows in the light
There's no need to hide
•••
Cause I'm on fire like a thousand suns
I couldn't put it out even if I wanted to
These flames tonight
Look into my eyes and say you want me, too
Like I want you

  • ~ SELFISH ~
.
Of late I have been wondering, what if selfishness is a matter of perception? What if someone who is selfish to me, is the kindest person to someone else?
.
Allow me to elaborate. On all the times I have used this adjective to describe a person, it was usually for a person who couldn’t understand my needs from our relationship. It was a friend who was seldom around, a sibling who would insist on proving themselves right in an argument, and of course the several dating disasters I have had. These were people I thought I was close to, and I expected them to give me something. More often than not, it was emotional support, a feeling of being understood, an emotion of being psychologically “safe” in their respective company without being judged.
.
But all these people I have ever called selfish, are perhaps extremely nice to other people. The concerned friend is extremely popular and has a huge friend circle of their own. The sibling is successful and  happy in their life. And the dating disasters are leading their own lives - some happily married, others in relationships, or enjoying their singleness.
.
And for all I know, I have been named selfish too. Maybe I have been a shitty friend or a pushy coworker. Or even a difficult person to date, since I am very very vocal about what I NEED in a relationship.
.
Selfishness is the root cause of toxicity. But what if it is just a matter of perception? What if I am selfish to someone else? What if I have been toxic to someone else too? .
Feels weird, to be honest. But then, self preservation is a survival skill. Maybe the game of life is to find someone you can be selfish with, and who can be selfish with you, without the fear of retribution.

  • Does your MC always answer?  Do you sometimes leave a question unanswered to give the reader something to ponder about?

  • Having passions and genuine interests makes life so much more exciting go for what you want no matter You are the only one who is responsible for your peace and no one else will do that for you. So if it means cutting people off, do not feel bad because at the end of the day, you are responsible for you.
-

We are always growing and we are always changing, whether that be progressing or regressing, we’re growing. Don’t try to stop it, or resist it because another thing is that the world around us all is also always changing/modernizing and it won’t wait for any of us.
-

If you surround yourself around people that have no goals, motivation, and lack of productivity. Their energy will rub off onto you as well! You gotta be surrounded by positivity to get where you want to go. Your life is about doing you and being selfish so You can manifest your dreams!.
-

Learnt that life is too short to be stressing over everything. Your stress should not get to the point where your losing sleep and getting chest pains. When You feel a bit stressed, You should write down everything that is making you stressed and then break it down even further and try to solve each problem. -

It's a little tedious but it makes the stressful thing less overwhelming and easier to think through. Or just try your best and let whatever happens happen. Also privacy is the key, there are some people that simply don’t deserve to watch your blessings.

  • If you’re afraid to set and enforce boundaries, you’re not necessarily just afraid to lose the relationship, you’re afraid of what losing the relationship means.

What do we usually make it mean when we lose a relationship? Guilt? Shame? Unworthiness? That somehow it’s our fault?

Most of us have been here at one point in our lives, afraid to express ourselves because we’d rather keep an unhealthy relationship than be alone.

If you read my last post about why we chase love, you’d realize that underneath all of our fears is a recurring theme. Fear of unworthiness.

We become attached to another’s love even if it isn’t really love because the alternative is feeling alone and unworthy.

This is far from truth, but we’ve developed belief programs throughout the course of our lives that create these thoughts and recycle the same experiences over and over.

There are really only two huge pillars that create the foundation for healthy relationships.

Self-worth and Boundaries.

Self-worth is knowing your inherent value, without you having to do anything. Without providing anything at all. Worthy of love just because you are you. Knowing your value will help you in not tolerating less than you deserve. You won’t have to fear losing a relationship if you value yourself and your partner doesn’t, because ultimately you deserve better.

Boundaries protect what you love about yourself. If you don’t know what you’re protecting, you can’t possibly set them. Boundaries by nature imply both inner work and communication - also very important in relationships. They create a healthy container to know if you’re truly compatible with someone, and if not, I hope you have enough self-worth to walk away amicably.
