It’s Okay to Look Out For Yourself

Precious Bennet, Reporter

This is possibly an unpopular opinion, but it’s something that I feel needs to be said. Sometimes, we truly do need to be selfish. It’s human nature for us to care about someone, possibly more than we care about ourselves. If you let this process go on for too long, you could end up in a vicious cycle that’ll be very hard to break out of.

If you’re like me, you have a big ego, but you have an even bigger heart. Having a big heart is most definitely a good thing because it allows you to express empathy and it allows you to feel things towards others. However, having a big heart can cause you just as much harm because having a big heart means your feelings are easily hurt. What I’m trying to say is that when you care for someone, it’s very easy to overlook the hurtful things that they do to you. You begin to blame yourself for the misfortune of your relationship. Please don’t do this! If it gets to this point, it’s time to throw in the towel. Walk away before things get too out of hand.

You need to be selfish sometimes. It’s just the way it has to be.
