No one wants to be known as selfish, yet we’ve all tried to grab the last piece of pizza. We’ve all nabbed those clothes from the sale rack just so no one else could get them. We’ve all called “shotgun,” wrestled for the remote, or raced to the bathroom after a road trip. We’ve all been selfish. Why? Sometimes, it feels like we can’t help it!
No one likes to be around people who are always putting themselves first, but we all find ourselves behaving that way and wondering where that intense sense of self-centeredness came from. For the next few weeks, we’re going to talk about the source of these feelings and our appropriate response to them in our new series called Mine.
