It's not selfish to take care of yourself.
Wise-selfishness is a concept I learned from
The Book Of Joy by the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu
. It is the
simple idea that in service of others, it’s okay to serve yourself.
You may have heard of the golden rule: “do unto others as you would
do to yourself.” But did you know that the golden rule is
bi-directional? Do unto yourself as you would for others.
Being “selfish” is a great way to help others. When we utilize
positive self-care we become the example. When we have great energy
and feel refreshed we can better care for others. When we remove
the guilt and shame around taking care of ourselves, we can better
serve. Be wise-selfish.
