125: It’s Not All About You: What Happens When You Can’t Be 100% Selfish Anymore

This week’s topic is a bit different because we’re talking about reaching the age where we can no longer be 100% selfish or self-indulgent. While we often have a theme of putting yourself first and setting boundaries and doing what’s right for you, we also want to talk about the other side of that – the point in our lives where we have to consider what impact our decisions can have on other people in our lives. Many of us are now sharing our lives with a partner or child, or perhaps you have more financial responsibility or you’re caring for an elderly parent or relative, these big life changes might not be something you had to consider 10 or 15 years ago, so we’re chatting abut how that dynamic changes our decision making.
