"Be selfish, and I promise everyone will benefit.” - Alexis Jones

"I'll take 'GUILTY' for $100, Alex!" (Jeopardy reference) And I'm sure I'm not the only one who does. As someone who leans into nurturing others, I find myself more concerned with the needs and wishes of them than with my own. Being selfish is often seen as a bad thing. We’re taught from a young age that we should share with others, put their needs before our own, and always be thinking of others. However, there are times when being selfish is actually the best thing you can do for ourselves. We cannot forget to take care of our needs first so that we can be of use to others.

"You can be selfish and still be a good person. I’m selfish, I want what’s best for me, too.”
