What’s Between Selfish and Selfless?
A short but sweet tip this week.
I was listening to Raj Jana’s podcast where he interviewed Karlee Fain about boundaries (episode 138). It was fabulous!!
At the beginning, they talked about the difference between being selfless and selfish and how to find the proper balance in the middle where we can be self-full.
Self-full means we take care of ourselves, our body, mind, and spirit, so that we have the capacity to give to others. But if we give away too much, we are no longer self-full, and we feel it.
Where are you on the spectrum right now? Many of us tend to be too selfless and don’t take time for ourselves because it feels too selfish. But our body, mind, and spirit can only take so much neglect before things break down. The result might be too much stress and frustration that harm our relationships, our peace of mind, and our overall wellbeing. It might show up as serious health issues as our body cries for help.
What do you need to say “no” to?
What do you need to let go of?
What do you need to forgive yourself for?
What do you need to stop doing?
