    I've been told I'm selfish

    because I talk about myself a lot. But wouldn't that just make me shallow?? Or is there not a difference. Because I think there is.

    I just am. I'm egotistic

    and everything must revolve around me. Unless I want it to revolve around you. And I'm not a family person so apparently to some people that makes me careless that I don't care about family. I try not to be selfish I do. But I just am and not many people see my efforts

    With young age a sense of harmlessness exists.

    The Defense Of Self

    When we get mad with someone why do we? Because they didn't treat us the way we wanted. How will hate ever end when by instinct we live by self-defense? If we had no boundaries, no desire for which to fight for we would let others hurt us and we wouldn't care. Each of us fight...
