It is amazing what can happen when you focus your attention inward instead of allowing your energy to aimlessly drain outward. Sometimes this idea is confused with the notion of being selfish, but there is nothing selfish about loving yourself, working on yourself, and focusing on your life. It is through bringing our attention to ourselves, and our lives, that we are able to realize what we need, how our actions and attitudes affect us, and what no longer serves us. By shifting our focus inward, we empower ourselves with self love, care, and acknowledgement, leading us to cultivate an environment that allows us to thrive and grow.
Think if the trees focused their energy on all the other trees around them and not on themselves, they would never grow. Their roots would not grow deep, their branches would not grow long, their flowers and leaves would not sprout and bloom. Trees don't flick through pictures of other trees thinking "wow I wish I had his branches" or "what I would give to have her leaves", they just live. They give themselves exactly what they need to grow. We should do the same.
