Selfishness


Your thoughts are your inner emotional language – the language that dictates how you make interpretations of behavior, your own and other’s. Your interpretation of your inner language is decidedly skewed on the side of selfishness. You believe that because you want someone to behave a certain, generally accepted way, it must be that way – regardless of what the other person might think. The fact of the matter is, there is a point at which YOUR emotional life ends and where another’s emotional life begins. It might be best to recognize and appreciate that distinction. Your emotional language ordains your emotional reaction.

We often mistake our own rules as law, truth and fact, “People should not treat me with disrespect.”

“Why?”

“Because I don’t like it.”

“Should people behave according to your likes or their own?”

“Mine.”

“What happens when they don’t?”

“They should be punished.”
