  1. The list may seem contradictory (for example, me [good]-others [bad] and then others [good]-me[bad]), but each pairing depends on the current issue. For example, putting others first when I am ill, is obviously not wise. And putting myself first (reading a novel or looking at FB) when my kids need tending to is also obviously not proper. However, not helping at an important community event because I’d rather watch a TV show or clean my tchotchke collection is less obviously incorrect behavior.

    There are many subtleties when choosing an appropriate response or behavior. Each pairing leads to sustaining or non-sustaining actions.
