“The most important thing to remember is this: To be ready at any moment to give up what you are for what you might become.”
~ W.E.B. Du Bois
Do you want to become something different than you are right now? No matter the change you want from yourself, you’ll need to give up something in order for the change to occur in your life. It might be something perplexing, like removing yourself from a circle of close friends, or having to choose something that would anger a longtime friend. When considering a change to make in your life, always do what is best for you in the long run. Why the selfish action? Because no one cares for you as much or knows you better as you do yourself. Being selfish sometimes is not bad as long as it benefits one or more people in a spiritually positive manner. If there isn’t anything spiritually-related to your selfish act, then it is truly selfish since it is done just for personal gain. Personal evolvement is made with proper progress requiring good judgment at precise moments.
