Selfish [Jan. 12th, 2010|02:50 pm]

[Current Mood |amusedamused]

If you are tempted to call someone else selfish I urge you to instead go over all of your journal entries and think to yourself, what percentage of these are about only how I feel?

Was thinking about this today as I was going off again about how I feel and realizing that is still my default despite efforts to think about other things more. It's really hard to ignore though, but I'll try.

I understand that journals are for getting out your own feelings, but I get tired of people being so negative about others and not even seeing their own flaws. I don't miss that part of LJ, but I miss the funny stuff so I came by to share this with you!

Now, something about people in glass houses throwing stones. Please note who should throw stones. :)

The person I thought this was meant for isn't on your friends list. Damn. Now that I think of it I would've been a little surprised if they HAD been, but...

Selfishness is expected, even when we do something nice for someone, it's often to help us feel better about ourselves.

But hypocrisy as far as it's concerned makes me want to slap a bitch. I've noticed the things that one hates most about themselves show up in accusations about others.

You know, this isn't meant for any one person. We all have moments of being frustrated by this aspect of human nature. The only problem is, it is easy to see in others but not as easy to see in ourselves.
