Doing things for yourself.

I feel like most of my adolescence was spent doing selfless acts in order to please others and to gain other people’s appreciation. I have recently come to realise that this is not the way forward…

I’m not saying that every action a person does should be completely selfish, but things shouldn’t be done purely with the motive of making others happy.

It’s important to do things for yourself to make you realise what is most important to you, to shape who you are. You cannot find yourself if you are continuously trying to meet the needs of everyone else around you.
