kit i think he knows.
he just doesn't care.
isn't that odd?
so who would be looking out for who?
him or me?
when i've figured that out
i'd be the selfish one
misstree i know i should feel bad
for wanting this
for myself,
but i don't quite understand why...

is it really right
to care about others
more than yourself?

ClairE You can't avoid it.

We all are.

However, selfish choices don't necessarily hurt other people

lycanthrope if you have a self, you're already selfish. It's saying these are my boundries. This is what i want. It's not maybe what you want. it's something that must be negotiated. The only saving grace about humanity, is that generally speaking, we can't do too much to help others without also helping ourselves. The same cannot be said of helping ourselves though. 020313
girl_jane I feel so guilty...I promise I'll never put myself first again 020503

Kate Fletcher Don't you feel selfish sometimes when you're sitting in your room listening to music or eating a chocolate bar, or taking a really nice long shower, and then you think about how many people have nothing and how lucky you are to be able to enjoy so many useless things. 020505
Jacer is it self of me if making someone else happy makes me very happy? 020526
girl_jane I broke my promise. I'm sorry, Mom. 020526
missliss i want to steal the love you have for me away from you, and give it to myself. so I can look at myself the way you can. and love myself as much. 020629
Kitten I am self-absorbed.
I need you here and in this house I am queen. Selfish.
I want to keep you in a small box.
Inside with memories and shadows,
You can never leave.
You will die before you see daylight.
Like a butterfly with a pin through its thorax.
My ego lives within you.
girl_jane I'm being selfish again, and I'm crying because of it. I'm such a fucking bitch for feeling the way I do about him when she saw him first. 020827

niska yes, only my feelings matter. yours don't. i am selfish - i won't change. you either find a way to work around it, or find somethign else to do with your time. it's not up to me. 030309
the one you hate You are mine. You have been mine for 4 years. I want you to always be my pet with the memories all wrapped up in a ribbon for me to come home and unwrap every night. Every night. And you will listen. And I will live my life for you. My life. For you. You have no other choice because you can't bring yourself to leave me. Ever. And I like that. 030604

sabbie i stood on a rouch and sharp rock
in the shade of a cliff face
toes gripping the edge
eyes squinted against the wind
and went fishing
for the selfish

my pot boiling on the fire behind me

awaiting dinner
blown cherry My car is gone, along with my last vestiges of independance.
My job is ending, the forthcoming poverty blotting out any chance of scraping back a little of what is lost.
My body is ill, and filthy. Not fit to be touched.

Unmotivated, immovable. Alone.
voodoo you are.
why can't i be?
it would be good for me.
maybe even good for us.

then again,
you wouldn't take it.
like i do.
Strideo i met a shelfish today, he was very selfish

PearlEarrings fISHing around for your SELF 031116
what is falling?
shelf is
a-z shelves are prone to do
for with the weight
of sweet and pickled fruits
it is too heavy
to agree with screws
or nails or the dusty
white papered surface
of what all is

it is a crash a smash
when the wood meets the tile
it is time
to wash up
and pick up
the pieces
of knowledge
who where why
what the self is
shhhh and a hush and a goodnight night
seeing as how eye
cannot find my reading glasses
loser how did I become so fucking selfish? 040206
Think Ill keep this one anonymous... I think I've gotten too depressed.

I think about suicide every day.

But what always makes me reconsider is how extraordinarily selfish it would be...

My therapist will probably put me back in the psych ward soon.
a girl like me i hate selfish people. i fear i might be one. 040502

Dan Moyer Tell me I have nothing to want and I will want it. But it's still something to WANT. 050409
Sintina A word that hurts.
But why?
Everyone needs to be
a little selfish.
You can't help others
without helping yourself,
For those in your care will see
how you care for yourself.
you can't know others
without first knowing yourself.
Selfish- so much negativity.
We all hate to be called selfish, because the fear is always there.
any of us has crossed
and will continue to cross
the line of basic,
neccessary selfishness
to toxic, grasping, uncaring selfishness.
It is a daily struggle between the self and all outside-the-self.
For if we don't care for others,
others won't care for us.
But sometimes the only way
to help is to step back
and this is always viewed as selfishness.
Do good and you will be accused of
selfish alterior motives.

Do good anyway.
nom i am a stupid selfish girl 070130
f don't be selfish, don't swap the plates around, they won't take you to the hospital, they will wait until you have passed out then burry you in the sand pit you have just helped dig out,

don't be selfish, and don't always run away from things as if there is something better to find, there isn't. will always find yourself,
in whatever way you are, sad, happy, guilty, sorry, .... you are running into yourself again and again so don't be selfish and stay there until you rot and become bone.

like it matters whether you see your fucking family again, be happy you were born, how selfish are you
? you spoilt little waste of space that needs to sleep all day because she doesn't want to be alive.

why want help then? did i ask you to give birth to me? NOOOOOOOOOO i didn't, so fucking stab me or poison me .......... i'm not going to kill myself because i am SELFISH.
Soma in my opinion you are a selfish CUNT sometimes. I get so sick of always giving giving giving and like the ocean you just take it all away. 101208
Risen What do I need?

I need you, here, in my life. I need your hands, there, just there, and don't stop writing me, holding me, straightening my spine and signing to me in a language only we understand.

I need you to smile at me, and reach out, and let me know that it is all going to be ok. I need you to keep your promise. Come here, share my world, give us that one night.

I need you to understand, I need you to forgive. I need you to be a little bit jealous because I need to know you care. I need you to miss me. I need you to write me into your veins, and I need you to tell me that I am still caught in the back of your throat, that my name is still written on your skin.

I need you here, in my life, I need to be able to reach out and feel like I am coming home. I need you to know that I love you, and I need you to believe in me. I need you to miss me. I need you to want that shared wavelength and the kink and the smiles and the meeting of minds. I need to hear you gasp my name, and I need to feel like I am understood. I need to know what you are thinking and I need...

I need everything. I need anything.

See? Selfish
f Selfish reveals herself.

it takes years to die.

years and years and years.

i'm still alive.
do i look like i want to be?
unhinged it used to bother me if people thought i was. pretty recently i realized, if thats what you think, thats your problem. 150823
