I've sometimes (and sometimes often) been accuseed of being selfish for wanting to be me and living accordingly (as much as I can). It's an accusation I've had some difficulties with, it's loaded to me. Yet, I haven't been able to grasp that concept, that it would be selfish to want to be myself. Others that I've talked with have simply said that it's ok to be selfish, to think about oneself. I've listened, but I've obviously not been able to accept that completely, or I wouldn't write this entry.

Oscr Wilde said something interesting on the subject, I stumbled upon this just a few moments ago:

Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.

-- Oscar Wilde

This is something I can listen to, easily.
