Some of us assume that whatever we want for ourselves is good for us, and whatever is good for us must be good for everyone else, too. That doesn’t take into consideration the fact that what we want is not always the best for us, so it may not be good for others, either. It may even be a good idea for us to examine those things we think we want in life and see if they really are something that would be appropriate to impose on others. We may find that we’re selling ourselves short, and not seeking or expecting anything near to what we might be able to acquire or achieve. If that’s the case, then we may not only be short-changing ourselves; we may be short-changing the people around us, too.
