Am I selfish?
« on: June 25, 2006, 11:54:33 PM »
I just realized a few moments ago that when I respond to a thread, I usually insert something about my own life, life experiences, etc.  I did it earlier this evening when I posted to Jonathan about his Ringo.

Does that mean I'm selfish? am i a highjacker? Should the fact that I'm asking these questions concerning myself provide me with an obvious answer?

Hi Basquo

You didn't highjack JK's post and you certainly are not selfish.

You gave JK and Ringo your love and support...there is nothing wrong in that.

Never knock on deaths door..ring the bell and run..he really hates that.

It really helps to know I am not alone, at least not in my feelings. When you talk about yoru experiences, I feel connected. Tonight, especially, I needed that. Thank you.

Basquo u ask if youre selfish in a way that implies that being selfish is bad.

Sometimes being selfish is a good thing.  Dont ever forget that.

And no you are not selfish - at least not for the reason you asked.

Can you post an avatar of yourself with no shirt on?  If you say no, its very selifh of you.
