Here's my question. How often do you think we live our lives thinking the subject of this post? "Okay, you get today, but tomorrow is for me."
I think I do it subconsciously, and I think it sounds more like this, "Yesterday (last week/last month/last year/etc.) was for you. Today is for me." I'm done trying to help you or think beyond my own 4 walls. I'm making today ALL about me.
It's unfortunate, because usually the 'yesterday' went really well. I can spend a day or a week thinking of someone else, but once it's over, it's like the rubber band effect. I'm done. I don't like that I have the capacity for this behavior. It disappoints me. It makes me sad for the other people in my life that I can be so selfish. I really do try, but there are days that I just fail miserably. And the worst part is that I fail because I want to...or because I decide to...not because I unknowingly do something ugly to someone. I absolutely know that I'm making decisions based on what Leanne wants and nothing else.
Does anyone else feel this way? If so, what are your thoughts and/or learnings on this topic?
