I am selfish.
I love myself.
I have been struggling with this constant fight with my inner self since I got my worldly knowledge.
Most of the times, the word that comes to my mind is I, let it be while thinking,writing, reading and even sleeping!! For me I is the first priority. I constantly try to get rid of this notion, but never succeeded till now. The question that arises on my mind is whether this is good.
I found reasons to convince that I am right. When I constantly think about myself I get a lot of chance for introspection. That’s a great way to correct my self, control my emotions, anger,ego and my faults. Thus I can ensure that I never repeat those.If I am correct, I can guide my kids about what’s right and what’s not.
If I am perfect, I will have the right to guide my family to be. When families are perfect, the society will be and the whole nation can be. That’s why I am selfish of constantly trying for my perfection.
I can understand others pain when I love myself more. I can put myself in their shoes and can feel their pain. That way I can help them better. I also experienced the fact that this constant fight with inner self takes us nearer to the God. It has also helped me to stay calm in all situations and accept the truth of life.
So, I will never stop loving myself, nor a constant fight with my inner self.
