I’m not a selfish person naturally. Not in any way at all. But since going through the motions of being diagnosed with various things such as hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, anxiety disorder and adrenal dysfunction, I’ve had to learn to do more things for me. I’ve had to become more selfish, in order to gain some of my life back and manage my health conditions better.
But being selfish is generally seen as a bad trait to have, with Google’s definition even suggesting this:
lacking consideration for other people; concerned chiefly with one’s own personal profit or pleasure.
