Raising children is a pretty selfless act. It’s all about giving (or should be) if you are good parents. Raising children is completely different from deciding to have children – which as I continue to maintain is a selfish act.

People get all bent out of shape about the word selfish. As if it is inherently negative.

self·ish adj. – Concerned chiefly or only with oneself.

Isn’t this everyone? OK maybe not Mother Theresa or a few (maybe a dozen others) that have ever lived are completely selfless for extended periods of their life. But for the rest of us, we are concerned primarily with ourselves. How can we help but be? We are the only people whose lives we know in their entirely. isn’t that strange to think about? For the most part we only know people at a point in their lives. We only know a snapshot of them – a few frames of a movie that we soon forget about to concentrate on producing, directing, and starring in our own roles. I need to think about this some more. Another day without links. Sorry.
