You are allowed to do almost anything in this life, you have the right.

Whether you should do it... that’s a totally different question. I feel like people get the two mixed up so often, especially in this extremely cursed individualistic society.
People do not like to hear this, but prioritizing yourself at all cost comes at a price, and you may wake up one day and be deeply unhappy with the price you paid.
Forgetting that you’re a human being who is reliant upon other human beings... forgetting that other human beings are reliant upon you, can be a disaster
I don’t prioritize myself at all costs. I don’t like the person I am when that’s what I do, and I don’t tend to like or trust people who do that.

My own personal happiness, especially in a fleeting moment, isn’t always worth destroying or even damaging another person.
In our quest for limitless freedom and unattainable ideas of happiness and love, we leave behind so much debris, so much chaos... just because you’re not there to see the results of your actions doesn’t mean they didn’t happen, doesn’t mean they didn’t change you internally
I’ve seen so many people who are carrying so much hurt over decisions they made in the name of “self-care,” and “self-love,” and they’re not given the language to talk about it and few people actually validate their regrets without rushing in to assure them they were right
