Thinking About Yourself is Not Selfish

If there's anything I've learned in the last six years of being an "adult," it's that you should always do what is best for you. It can be hard to figure out exactly what that is, but sometimes you just know.  I certainly believe in listening to and taking into account the advice of trusted friends and family, but in the end the decisions you make in life are yours. They affect you, not your friends and family (usually).  It's not just about being happy (although that's certainly a goal) but it's about choosing your path and creating the life that you want for yourself. That "dream" life will look different for different people and that's okay
