One thing that I have received through my therapy sessions is the firm belief that the concept of self should not be confused with greed, not even associated completely.
This is because somehow that makes it a negative concept, in my opinion.
The concept of self is not negative, and surely it goes through a journey of acceptance, discovery and actualization.
I came across this on a journey, and I am glad that I did. I am not the person I was years ago, months back or even a day before. I am new everyday, so is everyone, and we should not apologize for that.
If one is learning things as each day passes and those are good for us first, and then for society, I don't think we should ever be apologetic.
It's okay if a year back you thought you won't be able to live without a partner and now you think actually you would. It's okay if the very next day you sanely decide to start loving someone.
Your life belongs to you and your choices before anything or anyone else. You can apologize to yourself for some decisions and even thank yourself for some.
My therapist, after every session, asks me who understands me the most. She knows the answer, I know the answer. You know the answer too, because you do. //In the photograph, Harleen. Taken on a random day in college.// #HalfArtist
