Life | Am I Being Selfish?

Image from google

Hi blog friends!!

So my schedule kind of went out the window haha! This post is probably gonna be pretty short (and possibly quite vague haha) but I feel like I have to address it haha! I have had a rollercoaster of an August, a lot has happened and I'm not really sure how to feel about it all...

So first off I went through my first ever break up. I ended it with my boyfriend because I wasn't happy, I honestly don't have any bad feelings towards him (although I'm not sure how he feels about me) the relationship for me just wasn't right anymore and being 21 about to turn 22 I'm way too young to be my question is at this age am I allowed to be selfish? 
Well in short yes. One of my best friends told me that 'this is the time in your life where you've got to put yourself first' (love you Pol) and she is ultimately very right. Being so young means I should have the balls to say no to the things that are making me unhappy, and although I will never forget the time we spent together I can honestly say being selfish has made me happier.

But it's not just that being selfish and putting myself first has made me happier, it has given me a fresh start. I said in another blog post that I have moved away from Devon to work for Kingspan up in Hereford, and in order to succeed here I felt like I needed to close one whole chapter of my life to start a new one. Which is exactly what I've done, and I don't feel guilty about it! 
Every decision I've made in the past month has been for me and my happiness (something I haven't done in a really long time) and I won't be made to feel bad about that. People grow and change, it's a natural part of life and if being selfish is my way of growing then so be it.

So right now I'm just focusing on making myself happier and doing the things I want to do and no one is going to make me feel bad for living the life I want.

Lots of love
