Are YOU selfish?
Do you let people wipe their feet on you or do you shut the door in their faces?
By Cinse Bonino
Do people think of you as self-centered? Do they think that your ego is HUGE? Or do they think of you as a caring, giving person? No one wants to be thought of as selfish, but then no one really wants to BE completely selfless either. You are, after all, supposed to love yourself, to look out for yourself, to take care of yourself, and to respect yourself without thinking ONLY of yourself.
And of course you are not supposed to do what dogs do to fire hydrants on anyone either!
So, how DO you balance being true to yourself, taking care of yourself, AND being nice to other people? IS it possible to NOT step on other peoples' needs and feelings while refusing to be a doormat yourself? I think it is. But it CAN be tough. The first and most important step is to become aware of your actions and your words. Take the following quiz and find out what your actions and words say about you... remember - be honest!
