Selfishness v. Self-love: Exploring the thin line

In order to celebrate the end of Ramadan, I had the chance to spend an incredible few days with two of my dearest friends in Bombay.

“Putting the gas mask on first might seem like it’s selfish, but you have to take care of yourself in order to take care of others.”

Although I still deeply believe that there are costs required to live a life of purpose, I’m starting to realize a few things:

  • That although we might not yet know where’s the line between loving yourself and being selfish, it’s profoundly important to start exploring this question further.
  • And that perhaps exploring these questions through the love and support of friends like Bavidra and Saher and communities like Acumen might be a part of what that self love looks like.
