That is a truth, majority of us are inherently selfish. It is part of human nature. You can observe this behavior when it comes to difficult situation, or problems. For instance, when it comes to difficult situation, or problem, your friends might sell you out, even though you once offered your hands to help them. It is part of selfish behavior. It is hard to change, except you are a saint.

Good day clorissa123! I do agree that sometimes we tend to be selfish in our decisions at any given situations. It is part of the human nature that we tend to become biased because we want, especially for ourselves, to get the benefit and advantages available. Of course there is a part of our personality that we will give the benefit of the doubt that the decision will be a synergy solution - a win-win solution for everyone. However, it will never be the same for each scenario and the item options. We will always arrive to the point that we will put ourselves on top of the list to get onto it and we dont want to become the loser of our decisions.

I believe that when a person wants to change it can happen, and while we struggle with our human nature, we do not need to be saints to really change, we need to want to change and work at it.
