I used to be one of the most unselfish people you would ever know but sometimes people take advantage too much. I guess sometimes you just have to reel it in and sometimes learn to say no. That does not necessarily make me selfish though. I guess we are all selfish to a certain degree but not out of spitefulness. Happy New Year Alfredo

I don't feel as though I am selfish in the least. I enjoy doing and giving for and to others, its what brings me joy.

Yes we have to take care of ourselves and others too. So have to be selfish a little bit. After all it is a competitive world.

This is something that I am working on. I find it hard to say no. Sometimes I need to.

I can be selfish but I am trying hard these days to be the opposite. Giving to those who truly need can be rewarding.

I'm not selfish. I have a hard time saying no to anyone. I do enjoy my quiet days when nobody needs me.

I can be selfish now. When I want something I will save the money I make online to get what I want. I raised six children for forty years from the first one to the last one that turned 18. I worked a forty hour job. I sold at the flea market. Watched children before and after school. All so my children had what they needed and did not go without. So now that all kids are over 18 gone and on their own. I can get things for me. I love it. My husband gets stuff for himself to. But what we need and bills being paid always come first.

I try not to be, but I probably am sometimes.

I don't think I am, but have been told I am, because maybe after a long week of work in the past, I didn't feel like visiting some family , I was told I was being selfish. For me it was just tired, and felt like doing nothing but staying home.

I don't think I'm very selfish but I'm sure I am in some ways.

We are all a little selfish, some more-so than others. I have my selfish streak, but mostly I think I'm very unselfish. :)

I am selfish with my time that could be wasted on the trivialities of everyday life. If it is trivial, I do not want to spend any time on it. However, I am always ready to give my time to those who may be struggling or in need of help.

No, I'm not selfish at all. There are times when I can be but even then it's often for the benefit of other people (like to keep my own sanity so I can be a better mum to my kids). It's true that we need to take care of ourselves. My partner sometimes has to remind me that I am not selfish for making some of the choices I think are selfish.

Yes, I am selfish with my time and don't accept invitations just to be polite if I really don't want to go or need to be doing other things.

It is not being selfish to love yourself first more than anything else. Well. That osmwhat i think.

Like you, I am a selfish too. I never noticed it until I read your post. You are right, sometimes we should to be selfish, Because we shouldn’t give others more trouble if we didn’t take care of ourselves.

I don't know if that means being selfish, but one should take time to think of self -- sometimes.
