I had a conversation about selfishness vs self-centeredness and I chose selfishness
I believe I was wrong in choosing selfishness because it does not define me
I am concerned for my wellbeing so being self-centered is the one I will take on
Selfish is giving myself priority over others and choosing me
Self-centered is indirectly giving myself priority over others by ignoring others
So I would say that being self-centered changes how I view my very existence
I have said “yes” to me all these years by choosing not to be involved in your mess
I hope this explanation gives hope that if you are dedicated to learning “you” it gives conviction rather than condemnation.
