    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...

    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.

    Despite that I am married and have three children, sometimes I feel lonely. I think it's because it can be lonely living with a disability and difficult making friends.
