There are many times when selfish rather then selfless plays a major role in ones life. It is a struggle many of us have. Some to the extreme. Some being selfish plays almost no role in their lives. It is a Godly spirit that walks with this inside and shows it on the outside. Talk is cheap. But walking the walk and talking the talk is the proof in the pudding. There are some who take it lightly, not understanding the impact selfishness has on the ethos. Words, actions. The tongue. Body language can be positive and in just that and that alone, selfishness melts away and selflessness takes its place. Work on it. Stick with it. Find people who encourage. Seek out those who just want to see the best for you. Those who when you walk away gives you something for your betterment. Those with no agenda other then seeing you be the best you could be.
2 Corinthians 4:17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
