    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...

    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 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.

    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.
