The Reach of Selfishness


Often times we think of selfishness as something we do for ourselves but it can also be something we do to others.

Whether it is an overbearing parent planning out the future for their child, a spouse pushing their loved one up the corporate ladder, a friend always giving unsolicited advice, or a boss refusing to hear an employee’s innovative idea. Selfishness says; “my way or the highway, I know best, I do not suffer fools lightly,” and of course the foolish ones are those who do not share their vision of how life should be.

In the end it’s all about control. Selfishness comes from a place inside of us which demands our present and future, and those we claim to care about, go according to our plans.

Selfishness never leads to contentment , only to frustration and loneliness.
