I Am Sometimes Selfish

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 94 People

    I feel like sometimes I just talk about myself

    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.

    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.

    another opportunity lost, why does it matter so much? Why when we know it would just be for a few days. Then back to normal.. If normal is what you call it. I kinda love this normal life with you... So lucky to have just an ounce of your time, but being so selfish and not...

    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.
