I define someone as selfish as a person who is heavily focused on satisfying their own needs first & foremost & often ignoring the needs of others. They tend to be very self absorbed & self centered. The “center of the universe” as if everything revolves around them. Do you know someone who fits this description in your life? Are you guilty of this concept?
“Self-full” means to put yourself first on the list & to take better care of you. Being self-full really means that you become aware & learn to master how to sustain yourself without being selfish to others. Ms. Braun Levine illustrates this point with an example she called “the oxygen mask lesson.” For your own safety, as a passenger on a plane you are instructed to put the oxygen mask on first & then proceed to help others. The message is that you need enough oxygen to sustain yourself; otherwise you will not be able to sustain others.
Take the time to be mindful if you are being selfish or becoming self-full. There is a definite distinction & you will benefit from being aware of who you truly are.
