Inspired by the programme ‘Sophie in de (mentale) kreukels’ and Chantal Janzen’s statement ‘ You just have to be selfish’, this story is all about selfishness. Although pleasing others may give you a feeling of happiness, in fact it ‘s not. Making your own choices –and therefor being selfish-, will make you definitely happier. So, four reasons why we have to be (more) selfish:
//// Selfish people have better relationships. Happy people are generally more interested in others, and friendlier. Other people rarely remember what you said, but they’ll always remember how you made them feel. Self-focused people also have healthier relations just because they don’t let others manipulate or take advantage of them.
//// Happy, positive people are more bouncy. If we walk around with a happy, positive mind, it’s easier to take the hard knocks of life. We bounce back, keep on walking, and help others do the same.
//// Selfish people are healthier. Selfish people are more self-focused and pay more attention to their own body and health. They realise that Sacrificing themselves and their needs for the sake of others won’t make them happy.
//// Selfish people are more creative. You can’t create when your nervous system is under stress. That often occurs when you do things theat don’t make you happy. So make your own decisions and focus on what makes you happy because a calm nervous system is a calm body and mind.
