One user shares her mother’s experience with selfishness and how she changed into more selflessness.
“When my mom and dad were on their second breakup, she was out with her best friend and she was venting about all the things she wanted him to change.
Her friend asked her, “What do you want to change about yourself?” He made my mom think about how she was negatively affecting marriage too and she realized that if she wanted him to change things about himself, she had to be willing to change things about herself and meet him halfway.Spouses are in love with each other [Credit: Morsa/Images Getty]
