Sometimes, you have to be selfish. Like when the four walls of your room are your only hiding place, or when the thoughts that you tried so hard to block out just won’t leave you alone. Some days, you just can’t bear to look at your reflection in the mirror, let alone spend time with someone else. It’s too hard to make the effort, even if you love them. When your heart is racing, your mind is screaming and nothing will calm you down, it’s okay to be selfish. On those days, just do whatever it takes to feel good again.
