Am I selfish and antisocial? Maybe a little selfish. But there are few things better than being able to do what you want, anytime you want, with whom you want without having to ask someone's opinion or thinking about hurting someone because of your choices.
Self-compassion is not being selfish. One way to look at it is: being centered in the self as opposed to being self-centered.
With more self-compassion comes more space to open up for others — increasing your empathy. Because you are less hung up with your ego.
Nice piece. Thanks for posting.
