Can we stop using the term “self-centered” as something negative? The current connotation suggests a person who don’t care at all about other people, but what if we re-invent it? Self-awareness is positive. Being centered is positive; Buddhists meditate partly to BECOME centred. I feel like if I could become centered and focus first and foremost on myself, I could have so much more to give to the universe and everyone in it.
