self -ish?

9 Apr

I want to start from a beginning – from why I decided to go. People responded in so many different ways, but a common theme was that they “couldn’t do it” – do what? I thought, when this whole thing, essentially, honestly, first and foremost, was for me.

As much as I liked to think it was a selfless act, commendable, worthy… the motivation to do it came from somewhere inside, somewhere that was fuelled by personal reasons, something I must have needed to fulfil within myself and as long as I acknowledge that and don’t pretend otherwise then I think that is okay.

take off

who else

Maybe one day I will be able to do an act like this with true selflessness – but for the moment, most of it was about me.
