Aware that each action has a positive intention for your SELF and that caring for others starts with your own SELF-care, we understand why these two principles became the solid foundation of the concept “egoismul pozitiv” or “positively SELFish”.
Can I serve from an empty pot? What is selfish and what is not?
I launched this challenging oxymoron in 2016, while preparing a Summer Camp workshop on freedom in relationships for the students of the Alternative University of Bucharest.
Soon enough, Positively SELFish (#EgoismulPozitiv®) turned from a daring perspective into an open-minded practical learning program on SELF-Autonomy!
It all started with questioning the comment “You are selfish!” and becoming aware of the root of the word (SELF) and how suffixes (such as “-ish“) turn the initial words into something else. The joy of SELF-discovery and acknowledgement of the bright side of being selfish – meaning to actually have a SELF to reflect about! -, was truly inspiring! This is what led to the oxymoronic structure positively selfish!
More specifically, words create worlds. In this process of self-reflection, we move the attention from the generally accepted meaning of the word “selfish” (e.g. a person who does not care about others) to inquiring at personal level if, why, how, where and when this SELF manifests. So, how am I caring for others while keeping a vigilent eye on my SELF in the process?
So the purpose of Positively SELFish (#EgoismulPozitiv®) learning program is to:
- find your sense of SELF, seizing its meaning before the random attachment of any of the suffixes: “-ish”, “-less”, or “-lessness”
- grow self-awareness by practicing self-ruling (lead) and surrendering (follow)
- develop self-connecting mindset, skill and behaviours in 4-key areas: relationships, conflict, time, creativity.
