Do you ever want to run away and start over? Wipe the slate clean. Begin all over again with blank canvas? It's okay, we all feel that way sometimes. It doesn't mean you don't love your life or the people in it. It doesn't mean that you wouldn't give your last breath to see them happy. Sometimes when we yearn to be selfish, it means we have been selfless for too long. Selfless by Lang Leav
I confused the pain you were causing me with love and affection towards you. I just accepted the fact you pushed me away every time someone new came along. Then just went back to the way we wad before as soon as they walked away. I felt like I had to support you because of how you have helped me. But then I realised I gave you back everything you did for me plus a million times more. It became a one way friendship which was slowly pushing me over the edge. Now I've come to the decision that…
Users and Takers are a bummer but a part of life.... Lower your expectations and you'll never be disappointed with the negative aspects of human nature. Stay true to your goodness anyway. Good actions manifest into good lives...
Being 'selfish' - the most selfless act you can do for yourself
6 ways to break your own heart. Unfortunately I did all of these from the beginning with my ex-husband. Yes, I was very young but I hung in way too long & my child & I have paid the price. Always do what is best for you. Not in selfish ways but in ways that protect you first. I'm a big believer in not giving up on a relationship easily, but it shouldn't be destructive to you.

This is a better description of Fi/Fe than I've seen from most places, although they discount Fi's desire to make others happy. Many Fi users will go along with things they don't like because they're afraid of being a burden on someone else/making someone else do something they don't want to/not letting the other person have what they prefer, and thus being selfish by not letting the other person have what they want.
Yes. I will. Maybe, I'm being selfish if I do that, because I don't know how many and how much people cherish their memories with me in it. Maybe they thought that I'm the best thing that happened that time, and if I take it from them, their memories will be meaningless.... but then, I really want to go without causing other pains. If there is a way, then yes, I will take it, even if it will erase my existence in their memories, because I believe they will meet someone else who can replace…
5 Ways to Be Positively Selfish (for Good Reason)
You just can't be your best self when you're burned out, exhausted, and resentful. #greatist http://greatist.com/live/being-selfish-can-benefit-everyone
Powerful. So many of us want to give the world to others or to someone, but I truly believe that it's necessary to be selfish before you can be selfless. A great book I'm reading puts it even better..."thinking of ourselves first in terms of self-fullness, not selfishness." Put yourself first and you will have more to give whole heartedly. ~m
