“Selfishness” is becoming over-rated. It either feels too good to be selfish, and gets to your head, or you start having pangs of guilt after a particularly selfish session. Funny thing is that, most of the time we are ready to admit that we are selfish. Its good to be honest, but i dint know it was good to be selfish too! Ok i do
know. It feels really good. And in ‘today’s world’ you’ve got to be selfish. You’ve got to put yourself first. You’ve got to make yourself happy. But this ‘being selfish’ has gone to such an extent that, most of the people, who admit that they are selfish, use the fact that they are admitting it
as an excuse to do mean selfish things.
You get the difference? There is ‘being selfish’ and then there is ‘being mean and selfish’. Two totally different things, which people conveniently call as ‘BEING SELFISH’. Just because they are honestly admitting that ‘Yes i am selfish’ or ‘Yes i am a hypocrite’.
There are very few ‘honest selfish people’ in this world, and i’d like to think am one among them. Am selfish. Yes. But i don’t use that as an excuse to do something that i shouldn’t or to hurt someone whom i shouldn’t. Its hard to make certain choices, its hard to cut off some people or habits or luxuries from your life. But you do it. Either for your sake or for someone else’s sake. But now-a-days i see people being selfish to the point of no return! I know them, but i have no idea who they have become or why. People change, circumstances and situations change them, some just change for no reason at all, but its still change. And that too when its sudden and drastic and mean-selfish, its bound to shock you.
Ahhh.. well… it bothers you but not for long! You know what they say…
If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears. Cesare Pavese
And i prefer to travel super fast! 😉
