Being a little selfish can be a good thing. This is your life and not anyone else's. Why wouldn't you be an expert at knowing what you need? Pleasing everyone is not possible nor is it required. Why should you have to?
The same people who try to keep you closed in and dancing to their tune are living their lives just the way they desire to. Too many people get so caught up in what others will think of them not realizing the misery that comes along with carrying that weight.
Free yourself from opinions and live your life without fear of judgement. Yes, there is a chance you could possibly fail, but there is also a chance you will succeed. Take ownership for your happiness. It is not your job to make everyone else happy. The people who really love you rejoice when you succeed. Be aware of those who do not clap when you're winning.
Being selfish is putting yourself first, but there are times when you sacrifice for someone else and this is ok. Be sure that you do not sacrifice your own happiness long term.
