How I Stopped Being An Asshole
I found out the hard way that committing self-sacrifice doesn't make you a nice person. It actually turns you into a bit of a jerk.
On the outside, I've always been a very nice person. I genuinely care about people and being helpful has always been really important to me.
In fact, in 5th grade the faculty at my elementary school voted me the Most Cooperative Student in the entire school, and at the end of the year they presented me with a trophy for being a very good little girl.
I know. Yikes, right?
That trophy was all the proof I needed that if I just committed self-sacrifice hard enough, I'd receive all the love and attention I wanted.
So I committed myself to being the best damn people-pleaser in the whole damn world.
But I found out that the "nicer" I was to everyone else, the more of a dick I had to be to myself.
That's just the way people-pleasing works.
So in this episode I'll show you being a self-sacrificing asshole was ruining my life, and how I finally gave it up for good.
