I am not sure what tendency the OP is referring to, but I am not trying to overcome any tendency in particular at the moment.

If I were, that would be private and I wouldn't be talking about it on a message board.

But I do agree with Sherylds, I cannot change the world, only myself.

Moving in new directions.

Don Miller is a Christian poet, this quote from him seems to give the message that we must choose our path for ourselves and not choose a path for others.

When it comes to my children I can only hope that my guidance will lead them on a noble and moral path that is good.

USING SP TO HELP YOU KEEP TRACK OF WEIGHT LOSs, CALORIE INTAKE AND EXERCISE "IS" THE SHORTCUT!!!!!!

Actually , I think it may be somewhat beyond simple and average selfishness. There are individuals who seem to be able to block out that there is anyone else but them here. That is where I think selfishness becomes an " art form" and really allows you to do harm for others because you become indifferent to the plights and struggles of those around you .

Combat what tendency? To be selfish?

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.

... muster thoughts for one." so has stated a man named Donald Miller.

Sadly, I know this very much tends to be true of me!

What have you found or learned that has helped you best, OVERALL, to combat this tendency?
