eyeAsk: Selfish or Selfless?

When it comes to being you, there's a lot that goes into the job. You have to maintain your physical appearance, your sanity, your health, your money, your family, your job, your friends, your...wait - in essence family, work, and friends aren't thing you HAVE to worry about. So when you don't, is that being selfish? Let's say you do care, and you give to others more than you tend to yourself; is there enough leftover for you? Some people put themselves on the back burner, and are generally selfless.

eyeAsk, is there a happy medium between selfishness and being selfless?

Sure there is. We just have to create the balance. This may be a challenge, but the most challenging part is the people we surround ourselves with.
If these people are selfish, they won't care if they occupy your time or ruin your plans, because as long as they're taken care of, that's all that matters. It's okay to be selfless, but make sure you don't become a pushover and submissive to others. Take care of you, and then take care of others. What good are you if you're a mess trying to help out the next person?

Matthew 5:42 says, "Give to the one who asks you, and do not reject the one who wants to borrow from you." That's called being selfless. "Instead of being motivated by selfish ambition or vanity, each of you should, in humility, be moved to treat one another as more important than yourself." - Philippians 2:3 NET
