Selfish


Selfish

How different would life be if we took the view that everyone came out of the womb designed to be the perfect human? Then, along the way, the vicissitudes of life f**ked with our wiring?

In my heart, I believe that I am a good person who wants to make his life count by helping more than a million people overcome addiction and disempowered relationships. Still, if you knew me, you know a deep groove of selfishness and self-centeredness runs through me.

I eat first.

I take the more significant portions.

I push my way in front of people.

I dominate conversations.

I make sure you hear my agenda.

I need everyone to like me.

I must come.

I don’t listen.

I make everything about me.

I could go on and on.

These deep grooves drive my need to understand and accept the quirks in people because I desperately need them to understand and get them in me. 

We are all perfectly imperfect.

We are all flawed.

Or maybe, none of us is flawed because it’s human nature to be so, making the term mute. 

Here’s a man who has more experience than me on the matter.

‘The God Solution’ author, Neale Donald Walsch.

Much Love.
