If you want to feel like you matter then remember this.
You want people to use you.
You just don’t want to feel used.
You want to be useful and then be rewarded for that usefulness.
You have to set boundaries to stop others from taking too much.
But don’t get so lost in protecting yourself that you forget how rewarding it is to help others.
We all want to feel as though we did something good in the world. And the best way to do good is to be useful.
Learning to be selfish in a healthy way is about protecting yourself so that you can create enough abundance that you’re overflowing with good things and others benefit from being around you.
Don’t let people use you without reward or recognition. But learn to be useful and to insist that you receive the respect and admiration that you’ve rightly earned. And you will find yourself wanting to help more people tomorrow.
