Sharing Life..

Being a wife means that you always have someone to turn to when things went bad and also having someone to share the happiness with. Having a husband means you have to share parts of your life with your husband, I love it when I have this very special person that I can share everything to. Being a mother is another thing. Now that I have a family of three...I am now sharing my life with my husband and my daughter. I am overwhelmed with happiness when the three of us having a time together. I feel the love seeing my husband kiss our and hugging our baby. I am now seeing life in a different perspective. I know that having a family means that we can't be selfish since we have those we love so much to share this life with. I know there are some people who always think about themselves, not being care about other people. Here are some tips to stop being selfish.

How To Stop Being Selfish

  1. Try to develop empathy for other people and living creatures. Allow yourself to imagine how they feel, what hurts them or makes them happy. Open your heart.
  2. Look for ways to help; anticipate the needs and feelings of others. Join others who are kind and reciprocate kindness. Being with other selfish people, will not help you become a better person. We are very much defined by the company we keep.
  3. Listen. There is a big difference between perceiving something, and actually consciously listening to what people have to say. Act as if you see the problem by being in his or her own shoes.
  4. Don't interrupt people. Let them finish their sentence. Remember that your points can always wait. If it's urgent (like if you have to leave) say "excuse me".
  5. Put the needs of other people before your own. Pay attention to the people in your life to find out what those needs are.
  6. Think about the other person's personality. When choosing gifts or cards, buy something that reflects the personality of the other person. Don't just buy something because it's convenient.
  7. Remember birthdays. Someone's feelings are bound to be hurt if you happen to forget their special day. Fortunately, you can always make it up to them if you forget.
  8. Keep in touch with your friends, family and relatives.
  9. Volunteer.
  10. Be honest and loyal.
  11. Consider the advice people in your life give you. Take it if it makes sense.
  12. If you have to ask someone for a favor, offer to do something for them in return.
  13. Compliment other people. Don't just go on about how great you are.
  14. Make sure to be considerate and include everyone you know and like when inviting people to parties and events. No one likes to be left out.
  15. Don't butt in front of people in line. Also, if you see someone in a walker or a wheelchair, slow down or help them instead of just cutting in front of them.
  16. Be on time. If at all possible, call if you know you are going to be late.
  17. Give your time or kindness to others that need it. Random acts of kindness also make you feel satisfied.
  18. Do not take things people say or do so personal.
