I Am Sometimes Selfish

    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.

    well, only when it comes to some girls i like.

    i didn't know where to put this story so i'm just gonna put it on here. this is strange, but whenever i like a girl , i'm very quick to get jealous and things like that if she likes another guy, and that's how i loose interest in her. if i'm not her number one, and if she...

    Another day getting ready to pass,

    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...

    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...

    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 often have violent and cannibalistic fantasies. Mostly about me torturing and eating people I'm sexually attracted to. Sometimes the other way round.
