You’re not selfish unless you’re NOT taking care of yourself.
Or the proper way to put it, you’re selfish if you’re NOT caring for you.
It’s UNSELFISH to take care of you.
Yes, you read that right.
I think when we don’t care for our minds, our temples, our health, our safety, our faith...
That’s when we become the most selfish people.
Why do I think this?
Let me explain.
But first, hear me out. I’m a selfish person. I consistently ask for forgiveness for my self-seeking desires. I am not here to judge or convict. I am writing this post to serve, to bring some loving-honesty.
Here is part of the definition of selfish (adj); concerned chiefly with one’s own personal profit or pleasure.
Why do you overeat?
One of the main reasons: to make yourself feel better in the moment. We are concerned with our pleasure.

Want to know something fun?
I came to the realization the other day… I don’t have that much fun.
I use these all as excuses to stay in a serious, un-fun mood.

But, being happy, having joy, both of these are good for the spirit.
Since having fun doesn’t come “naturally” to me, I decided to make a list of joyful things I could...
Want to know something really neat?!
You are 100% lovable. Always have and always will be.
There is nothing that you need to do different or change to be loved more.
Really, this world needs more love. I know it sounds cliché but it’s true. If we all could just see each other’s innate worth and lovability, can you imagine what this world would be like? What if we were all just confident in who God made us and loved ourselves even? Not in an arrogant way, because arrogance is not love, but in a self-confident way. Self-confident love is knowing your worth but recognizing everyone around you has the same worth.
And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:14
You should really love yourself in a self-confident way. I recommend it. It doesn’t matter if someone else doesn’t love you. Loving yourself is about giving yourself the...
