The Importance of Self Interest
I used to believed that self-interest – is bad. How wrong I was! I am treated better by others than to yourself! And at some point, really, it has ceased to love yourself, constantly tormented and exposing the claims against his person. Do you think it was successful period in my life? Of course not! For if you do not love yourself for what you love others? Until then, until I realized that all my achievements are associated primarily with a deep respect for myself, I could not get the ball place, moreover, has made quite a few steps back. Almost a year of life I spent on it in order to regain the lost faith in themselves, get rid of unwanted feelings and learn to live a full, active life. At first, I wean to think negatively about yourself and worry for any reason, to take responsibility for the actions of others, to indulge the whims of others, upset because of someone’s lack of foresight. Even more difficult to accustom themselves to respect and love for his appearance, intellectual level, social status.
And then a miracle happened! I realized that the man who really loves himself, without prejudice to anybody’s interests, we need everyone! I replaced half of the environment. In my life began to emerge relations, not only due to the user level. Disappeared from the horizon of the individual, knowing only one verb: “Give!”. A lot of friends on the principle of “Let’s useful to each other.” Now I collect their achievements, not their failures. Remember the book “Gone With the Wind”? Favorite phrase heroine Scarlett was saying: “I will not think about it today, I think about it tomorrow.” Vchityvayas in line the novel, I was looking for when Scarlett thinks about the obstacles that prevent her on her way. Now I’m going to think of myself tomorrow that I hate today – and do not remember this anymore. It is difficult, of course, teach a love without zatsiklivayas on unpleasant emotions, and even harder to someone who does not believe in myself and expect from life, only surprises.
