Welcome to my new series! I always see YouTubers do these posts where they eat/drink and talk about a topic. So I thought I would do that in a written format. Grab some coffee, tea, or whatever you want and join me in this discussion (only if you want to of course).
I want to talk about selfishness today. Everyone is a little selfish at times. But I’ve been really frustrated because I feel like I am surrounded by takers. People that are only around you when they want someone. They take, take, and take until you just feel exhausted. They don’t think of how their actions affects you or others.
It’s partly my fault because I am always willing to help friends and I am generous with my time. This attracts selfish people and they assume I am unaware that they are using me. I am aware, I just don’t know how to deal with them. I honestly just don’t understand how people can only do things out of self-interest. I am in no way a selfless person, but my interactions with people are genuine. I don’t expect people to constantly tell me “good job” but I would like to be appreciated, especially if I am going out of my way.
It helps to be firm with “takers”. You can be nice and still draw boundaries. How do you deal with this? Tell me in the comments your thoughts. I used to do a lot of posts like this, but I have been focusing more on recipes and photography. Anyway, I am going to try to do these coffee chats at least once a month. That’s really all I have to say…thanks for reading!
