I don’t think I’m a selfish person. I would say that I’m often self-absorbed but selfish is not a word that I would use to describe myself. That said, I don’t think I’m entirely selfless either.
None of these things are concepts that I mull over on a daily basis. But I’m thinking about them right now. It’s not just because one of my “baby” cousins has had a baby and I’m excited to see how fatherhood will change him. It’s also because I’ve just read an excerpt of one of Jessica Biel’s interviews, in which she discusses motherhood. Her take on the subject is fascinating.
