I do feel that way sometimes, but I always to take it of oof my mind. Because I know it's not right and improper to be selfish, I don't know that by being selfish, I was already hurting the one's that I loved. So I try to think more broadly, and also consider others' feelings. I think for those other people who don't realize it, have been a slave for greed. They want to possess more and more, without even thinking of the feelings of other people.

almost each and every person gets selfish for his benefit to a great extent.

Yes I did reach that point. I had spent most of my life taking care of other members of family. I began doing this at a very young age, from elderly relatives to the babies in the family my age and placement in the family meant that many times they "kids" were dumped on me to be the one to take care of them. I began taking care of my mother when I was only 6 I mean cleaning the area and changing the bandages after her surgery. I learned to cook at that age, and I could iron my own school uniform at that age. I took care of her and others then when I was 17 I began raising my niece, I put my own life on hold to do this. So that by time she was 17 I was still caring for her, but she was living with her mother, yet I took care of her five days a week. Then I realized after the deaths of grandparents and mom, that I kept doing things for others, I was going to now take time for me. I was going to do what I wanted, things that were specific to my wants, and interests. So why did I become selfish, because I spent the first 5 years being a kid, then the next 30 years doing what was important for other people and not for myself. I was an adult when I was only 7. It was time for me to relax a bit and enjoy. Then it only lasted about a year. Once I began a deeper relationship I then would have some kind of balance, but occassionally slip into doing what is best for that person. SO that I periodically go "selfish" and do things that are just for me.
