Seeing past me

Why did they have to ask me? This isn’t my role? Isn’t there other people that could help?

These are all questions I found myself along myself over the past week. Outwardly I joke about being ‘the fixer’ while inside, I’m a ball of anger. The best kind too … Justified.

While off-putting, I know I’m not alone. We are all combating selfishness on a daily basis.

Where we know it or not, the over powering message played out in our community is YOU deserve more. Not that we want more (even though we do) but that you deserve it.

Worse still, the messages are accompanied by an offer of more and how YOU can get YOURS.

So as I battle selfishness in my own life, I reflect on these great words…

Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.

Which path will you choose?
