At any point of Life, when I look back, I see that – It was all about me. The decisions I made, the path I took and the people I chose- I did it for myself.
Everything I do, I do it for my happiness.
Am I selfish this way? No, because the most important person in my Life is Myself.
When I feel this way, I cannot not let anyone or anything rob my peace of mind.
It took me some time to realize this-
If our own happiness is our top most priority, we would not let the negative feelings or people trouble us.
When I took my MNC Job, it was my happiness. And when I quit it for my family, it was again my happiness.
Now, being a Mother. when I feed my child first even if I am hungry, its still me. I feel satisfied and happy when I do this.
When I help someone, its me who feel happy.
When I donate, its me who feel content and good about myself.
When you visit a spiritual place, are you trying to please God or your own Self?
I visit religious places because I feel good, I feel close to God, I feel more energetic, I feel more thankful.
Even behind our selfless acts, we have hidden self-interest i.e. our Happiness. We feel happy seeing others happy and smiling.
Earlier, when I labeled someone else as the most important person in my Life, expectation started building up. Now when the most important person in my Life is MYSELF, I do not blame anyone, I do not expect much.
For long, I blamed my Husband for being the reason behind my Job quitting.
But now I take 100% responsibility for the decisions I make and for creating the Life I am living.
We let other’s words or acts make us feel uncomfortable. We all do this. Stop it now.
At the end, it’s YOUR life and You deserve the best.
Wherever you go. Be a happy one!
