Healthy egoism vs pure egoism

Nowadays we all talk more and more about self-egoism 🤔. That it’s good to put yourself first sometimes, that we should spend some time with ourselves as a self-care practice 🙏. But, as with everything else, we need to remember about healthy balance and we need to learn to differ healthy egoism from pure egoism 😉.
:::
➡️ You can say ‘no’ to your friends when they’re inviting you to a party because you want to spend some time with yourself. That’s ok👍. But when your friends need you and you say ‘no’ to them because you’re going to a party – that’s not ok 👎.
:::
➡️ You can focus on yourself and ask your family to give you some time alone because you want to work on your passions. That’s ok 👍. But when your family needs you, when you have some important family activities and you ignore them/miss the meeting because you want to work on your passions – that’s not ok 👎.
:::
➡️ You can spend money on yourself, invest in your projects or buy some new clothes when nobody else in your family has bigger needs. That’s ok 👍. But when you spend money on new clothes for yourself and skimp on a gift for your close one and/or give them nothing when they always give you gifts – that’s not ok 👎.
:::
Remember, we need to make sure there’s healthy balance in everything ⚖️. It’s good to focus on yourself, it’s good to spend time on your own but not when by doing that you neglect your closest family or friends 😉.
