Seconding Yourself

Loving a mate, or loving your children, often means putting yourself second. Seconding yourself.

For comedian Louis C.K., having a child changed his life. Having a child freed him from selfish notion of what he'd given up, to fully and deeply appreciate what he'd gained.

Interviewed by Terry Gross, Louis says:
The greatest thing about having a child is putting yourself second in your own life. It's a massive gift to be able to say you're not the most important person to yourself.
