Are you enough selfish?

Did you ever find yourself in a situation that others accuse you of selfishness? You canceled the deal with someone because something urgent happened and you could not come. You missed the party because you had an important exam so you were studying. Your pet was sick and you could not go with a friend to watch a football match. 
People will look situation different from you and it is not the rarity that someone will call you selfish. "You think only about your needs, what about me?" That is something that you hear when someone asks your attention. But, the key to happiness is indeed in selfishness. If we will always please to other wishes, when is our time? When we will do things for ourselves, which makes us happy? 

Ask every person with ambitions, ask every successful man how much time he found for own plans. How much selfishness is created during life, and why he realized his dream?

Helen and Alice were good friends, from high school until college. Alice was the party girl, and Helen was nerdier. Alice also had a bad habit to complain about her problems to Helen, in every moment. It was midnight when Alice called Helen to talk about his awful ex-boyfriend who is stalking her. Helen was very patient, but she had her limits. When Alice called again in the morning, until Helen had breakfast, Helen lost nerves. "I have right to eat in peace. Please, can we leave this subject for later? " Alice replied: "You think only about yourself. You are so selfish. No wonder you are single. " That situation went wrong and they did not talk few months. 

Everyone has a priority list. You know what is important to you. 24 hours in a day is sometimes not enough to do everything you wish. Today, you want to visit your mother. You are invited to go to the cinema with a best friend. Also, today is your cousin's birthday. Your boss wants that you work overtime. Life had a strange sense of jokes, and often it will happen that you will be busy when you don't hope. Your relatives want to see you, and they did not call you 6 months? But they want to visit you today, when you must clean house or when you are not at home. The magical word NO will be insulted for some people, because they feel abandoned. What, you don't care about me?

How to say on the decent way that you have no time for someone?

"I am busy. See you later."
" I will call you soon. "
" We will deal for next time."

It is true that some people are really selfish or rude. They will reject you on the indecent way and you will feel as shit. You will kiss their door, without explaining why. Then, you will remember this for next time. Often, such people will ask the favor from you, and if you are vindictive, you will say NO. 

Our life is a puzzle. In this puzzle, all parts are not equal. Some parts are not red, and not urgent. It can wait. Your baby can't wait to feed him and your old mother needs care, but the party can wait. Also, if you jump every time when someone calls you, you respond on the whistle, as the dog. It is familiar that such person will be taken for granted. You are always free, so everyone will call you, but when you need someone, you will stand in front of a locked door, because you are not enough selfish.

Women are not weak as they look

Where is a fight, there is love. Since childhood opposite genders tease each other, make conflicts and argue, just to compare their mental strength. Men are strong gender by nature, but many of them underestimate woman’s will and character. Some judgments define a woman as fragile, sensitive creature, and the man who is educated in the traditional family will often underestimate a woman. He will see the weak creature in the corner with a face full of tears. Well, a woman can defend herself in thousand ways. She will seduce you to obey you. She will pretend weakness just to take revenge on you if you humiliate her. Be ready for her trick as on poker table. Especially men who are used to silent, obedient woman can’t count on such resistance. Remember, the woman is the one who is working and clean house after work, carry for kids and for your laundry and your meal. Women are multi-tasking, so how can they be weak? When you fall in love with a woman who can care for herself, she doesn’t …

Are you the hunter or the kill?

Criticism is a sensitive field. It is easy to give critics, to mock someone, but it is not easy to receive this in return and to make a joke by yourself. Do you laugh at yourself, in public? Do you allow friends to tease you, even this means that they will overrate your faults and make your values smaller? There is a thin line between social clown and person who loves to make jokes about yourself. If you are a hunter, if you respect yourself, you will allow the certain dose of criticism but you will not be a doormat. If you ask me to whom you must be grateful, maybe my answer will surprise you. Yes, i am grateful to my parents because they give me motivation, strong will, and attitude. I am grateful to my sister because she stood on my side when i felt miserable. I am grateful to my husband for accepting me as i am, even when i was the worst nightmare. Mostly, i am grateful to my rivals, to develop my strength. As i passed my initiation, faced with many troubles and get out from bigg…

Are you grateful for the things you have ?

Are you grateful for the things you have in your life? I don’t think about furniture or new plates, i think about your private and professional life. Sometimes, we forget to save gratitude in our heart because our mind is too busy by dreaming about something we still did not realize. Gradation looks like this: I don’t have boyfriend. I have boyfriend but we are not married. We are married but we don’t have kids. We have only one child. Our kid is not obedient, we have problematic teenager.
In professional plan, we can use same pattern: I am studying and i don’t have job. I have job but my salary is small. I have good salary but i have no free time. I have job but my boss is dictator. It is about human nature, where all are rivals, competitors and opponents. Why your neighbor owe expensive car, and you are going at work with bus? Why your kids can’t have designers clothes? Why your friend has bigger flat then you? We are dreaming because of our ambitions. It is not bad, i am also ambiti…
