There is nothin…

There is nothing wrong with being selfish. People who call themselves selfless are fooling themselves. Even if you give away everything and remain anonymous, it is still a selfish act because everything you do caters to your own ego to make you FEEL benevolent. Selfishness is not something to be ashamed of. You can be look out for yourself and still act honorably. It is not cynical. It is called being honest to your own feeling.

About Nicky

Nicky English is a journalist, an educator, a podcaster, a couch potato, a dreamer, and a child at heart. Learning is her passion, so is the English language, which she believes is the tool to unlock the door of knowledge. Born in Hong Kong, she received intensive writing training at The University of Iowa, where she double-majored in journalism and political science. Apart from the Hawkeye State, she’s lived in Chicago and Philadelphia. When she was a guest student at Georgetown University, she fell in love with Washington, D.C. She also has a Master of Arts in Communication. A little side note—she cannot imagine a world without her Mac and iDevices. Like many crazy ones, she hopes to change the world one day at a time.
