    I Shouldn't Be But I Am

    There are days when we talk all day and I soak her all in and I still want more..... Even down to the last minute, I try to stall the goodbyes..... But when she is gone, I still want more... It is selfishness or love? When I get time to call or IM her, I sometimes expect to be...

    I feel like sometimes I just talk about myself

    too much, and complain about things that I shouldn't be because people in this world have it way worse. I want to be selfless and be there for people, I want to hear them. Actually hear them, and try my best way to help out. I don't want to be blinded by my own carelessness. I...

    Selflessness?

    I have been contemplating this recently. I am selfish because I seek what is good for me. I think the problem is when selfishness excludes considering the desires and feelings of others. Being completely selfless is nigh impossible.

    It's okay to be selfish sometimes.

    We are all only human and that means that we have faults. Acknowledge it, deal with it and move on. Besides, a little selfishness keeps us sane. The one is just as important as the many.

    I have a crush on my best friend to a degree

    where I believe that he should be all mine, I want him all to myself, I don't anyone else to be able to talk to him, or look at him, or think about him, or touch him. I want him all for myself, just as a friend or more, but nothing less. ... I don't know, im weird.

    I tend to admit to someone what I am feeling and that sometimes leads to me being ignored or used. I think sometimes they just stop talking because they are thinking "weirdo"
