Recommended Read: Redefining SELFISH | Carolyn Hobdey

Redefining-Selfish book cover

What happens when you are forced to survey the ashes of a life lost? When you ask yourself: what the hell has gone wrong?

Carolyn Hobdey had a successful career, the sports cars, the big house, the holidays, the friends… but it meant nothing. To be genuinely happy, she faced the stark realisation that she needed to completely reset her identity. After years of being told that being ‘selfish’ was wrong, enduring co-dependent relationships with narcissistic partners and toxic work colleagues, often being cruel to herself in her words, thoughts and behaviours, Carolyn learnt there was a need for Redefining SELFISH.

She’s done the work and can now guide you through the process if you recognise yourself in any of the following statements:

  • I feel guilty if I put myself first.
  • I juggle numerous demands for my time and attention.
  • I consider being selfish to be a bad thing.
  • I have an endless ‘to do’ list & never reach the bottom of it (where I am).
  • I’ve previously been called ‘selfish’ for asserting my needs (or I’m led to believe I am for doing so).
  • I feel weary, burnt out, resentful and/or undervalued.
  • I struggle to prioritise my wellbeing.
