    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.
