    Well being selfish and knowing what you want are two different things. It' s okay to know what you want and take care of yourself, but being selfish is different. Being selfish means always wanting your way or your things above everyone else's wants and needs. I think being selfish is only "good" if you're hanging out around not so good people that you don't trust. In that situation I wouldn't ever consider it selfish, it's still self-care.

    The people that will call you selfish are the people that have not given everything they own away to others less fortunate than themselves. In other words, they are good liberals that want you to share but they themselves do not really want to. They may give a little but they still limit and choose their sharing.

    Being selfish is like the "Dark side" in Star Wars.

    "Easier, more seductive" but the rewards are less than if you had chosen to help others along the way.

    Loneliness is its own punishment. There are untold riches for those who choose to participate in the brotherhood of man

    It is necessary to care about yourself and take good care of yourself. That is not selfish. The behaviors that benefit you but hurt others in the process are the ones that are selfish--not caring about others.

  • It's right to stick up for yourself. But no one should be oppressed.

    No. Go sell everything you have and give to the poor. Thats what I did. I was rich at 19. I gave it all away. And I want for nothing. Peace of mind in my heart is what I have and my Westerns I plan on taking to Heaven with me when I go. It pains me to watch whats happening to the people without much, while so much money is parked off shore in crooked banks by crooked greedy people.

    Try to get a Christian with memory loss to sin. They won’t be able to repent from it.

    Cheer up, you have a long way to go before you are more selfish than Hillary Clinton or Nancy Pelosi. They care about no one but themselves.
