Self Less
I like to think about me. I admit it. I focus on my career, my family, my needs, my wants. Is that unusual? The world tells us to focus on ourselves. Media tells us to be thinner, prettier, younger. Social media tells us to focus on having a more exciting life than all of our friends. Then be sure to keep track of how many people "like" or "love" your posts. It encourages us to keep checking our status to see who is noticing us. With all of this encouragement, why should I try to focus on myself less?
