They will make you less selfish
No doubt about it, having and raising children takes sacrifice and effort. Your life is no longer just about you, but about others who depends on you. Late night feedings, plans that have to be changed, far less time to spend on yourself ... these sacrifices can be painful. But the love you will have for your child helps you to be more selfless and to grow in love.
