i have a question for all of you readers… is it selfish to hate selfish people? i mean think about it, selfish is defined by merriam-webster as “concerned excessively or exclusively with oneself : seeking or concentrating on one’s own advantage, pleasure, or well-being without regard for others”. now basically what that breaks down to is: if its not what i want or like or desire or care for then its not important, or right. so once again is it not selfish to hate selfish people. i think it is, and that in itself is my dilemma, although its not really much of a dilemma because when it come down to it, i don’t really care what anyone thinks of me. now thats selfish. although, even that’s not 100% truthful. everybody cares about what people think of them, even if its just one person who you care about caring. its natural to want to be liked and accepted and i am no exception to this. now is that selfish? and if it is, then is selfishness something we can do nothing about? i think so, on both accounts. see, selfishness is something that has a stigma attached to it, or maybe just the term selfish has the stigma. if we, for a second, say we lived in a society that still heavily believed in the ‘only the strong survive’ mentality then only concentrating on self would be the norm. as i learned from the movie 300 the spartans used to kill the babies they didn’t think would be strong soldiers. talk about selfish. but back then it was what they did, right? i guess… really, i don’t know why i created this post. i was thinking about this topic for a couple days and i felt i would share it with you guys. would like to hear what you have to say about this. and just to clarify, i do believe i am a selfish person. i think we all are.
