Selfish...Self centered...

Ok... now I am really confused about these words... Anybody who thinks of self becomes selfsih or self centered... Now how is it possible in today's world that we never think of ourselves...
(here I talk about normal human beings)

If you are just not concerned about the other person and trying to hurt by doing ur things just coz u want to do it... May be its right to call these words... But there are times these words are used on People just to make sure they are hurt.. Or to hide the selfishness of the person calling out these words...

Well whatever it might mean.. We all should know when to prioritize our things and when to be considerate of others:)

Definitely Self must come first in the most tricky situations but overtly thinking only abt self is what selfish is or if u r trying to make gains in wrong ways.. Selfish in a way is being compulsive in a bad sense about one-self.. oh.. i have no idea wht i am blabbering.. anyways.. chill

Everyone, even if the don't agree of being selfish/self-centered, are selfish or self-centered. Its just the extend to which they are selfish is less/more in proportion.

Its nothing wrong in being selfish upto some extent. Its something like "If i will not earn more money how can I donate it to poor?". So "I" have to earn.

In this "Big bad world", watching out for oneself before anything else is the way to go... Now I might be sounding "self-centered", but I've learnt some hard lessons trying to be helpful... So, instead of trying to think about various situations and how to act in each of them, its just better to have one catch-all behavior and watch out for oneself always! Sure, sometimes you'll be coldly treated for your behavior, but I guess its far, far better than the other side of the bargain...

Rightly Said :-)) People just use the word to make the other one hurt.....These days the meaning of the word is getting changed !

We get caught up in our individual gains and losses, pains and pleasures, imagining ourselves to be isolated centers of thinking and action, engaged in pursuing selfish interests. Self-centeredness, however, causes trouble for others and for society and gives rise to suffering.
