Selfish? Yes, I Am!

"You are selfish!"

I have lost count of people who have told me that. The funny thing is I almost always retort with a "Yeah! I am selfish! And you are not?". I seriously have no idea what people intend to do by saying that to me coz -

a. It doesn't hurt me.

b. It doesn't make me sad.

c. It doesn't make me happy either!

d. I already know I'm selfish! :D

... So this dialogue especially leaves me amused, if not anything else. Come to think of it, isn't everyone selfish? We all want to be happy -- isn't that selfish? We all want others to act according to our will - pamper us when we want, be pissed off with certain people when we want... and when that doesn't happen we are sad. Isn't that selfish? I don't know why being called selfish is considered as a bad quality, when everyone IS selfish!

I am sure that almost anyone was able to relate to Kareena Kapoor in Jab We Met when she said 'Main Apni Favorite Hoon!'. ;) And why not? Three cheers to selfishness, I say!

P.S : My net is down, and I am using my mobile as a modem nowadays. I can't visit blogs (including my own) as much as I want to coz of this. Some blogs are so difficult to load especially those with Disqus comments! :( Will visit soon! Till then, adios! :)

P.P.S - Post not meant to hurt anyone. Thought this one was long overdue considering that I have been getting this lovely dialogue a lot for the past few years now! :D

P.P.P.S - Dhanya admitting to being a selfish person, doesn't mean she's a dangerous psycho. She will NOT use weapons or hit you if you hurt her. Or will she? ;) :D

    Because i worked hard to do soemthing, came to Uk, and all those realtives and friend who got left behind Was because its my fault .. and Because GOd only wanted me to come and be successful.. so I am selfish to all those people :)

  7. Selfish? Ok, 'Selfish' can be of many types. All are selfish to some degree, nothing wrong in it, like Kareena kappor is made to say in Jab we met, by the director.

    But selfish-ness to a level of Narcissism isn't good either....So next time when someone calls you a fish, sorry selfish, please ask for further clarifications.....he/she may not have meant jab-we-met type of selfishness......

    Mein apni favorite huin is not being selfish...its just being proud of being who he/she is....And when a person achives that level of self confidence all the negative forces like ego, insecurities etc vanishes......TC. sorry, didnt mean to give so much free gyaan....Pay me some time later. TC

  18. everybody is selfish though most people are not honest enough to admit this fact. people are not courageous enough to admit this. However in praise of selfish people i would say that all great things have been made by people who are selfish.:)

  27. OH thank god! Finally someone who is happy about being selfish :) I never quite understood why it's used with a negative feeling :)
    jai ho !


    ps: I also realised that people have a tendency to call you selfish if you dont do things according to their wishes.

  28. ZB - I don't listen to them, hence they call me selfish :D I already know the reason ;) As long as you're obedient and listen to everything other people say, they are happy!

    And abt the dialogue from Jab We Met, I thought abt it in a more complex manner -- by saying 'main apni favorite hoon' u consider urself better than other people and hence ur not giving them a chance to be a favorite! That's selfish -- coz you only want YOURSELF to be your favorite :D :D Deep no? Haha...

  29. Ramit - Awwwwww !!! That was really really sweet :) Thanks bro...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sagarika - Hahahah! Well, not really! :D I do punch people playfully though ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Jon - I will differ on that. Like I told ZB, if you say that dialogue, it just means you are not willing to give anyone a chance to be your favorite.. you just want YOURSELF to be your favorite. That's self-ish ;)
