I can relate to this on a deeply personal level. Feels like you wrote about me--glad to know I'm not alone in this. To me, I honestly think the reason for all the "selfish" label people threw at me was actually because I don't put a "price value" on myself, but a "life value". My life is priceless and I know it better than anybody else.
Thank you for sharing this thoughtful piece, Hannah. :)
