I've heard that to act on desire is to give in to the ego. I've never desired much of anything other than a relationship and that's where I've seen the least success. I'm starting to think that maybe I'm asking to much of people. Perhaps I'm being selfish for trying to make something happen or persuing people when I shouldn't. I also think that to not try is unforgivable. I battle with these ideas constantly, not convinced that getting a date will resolve my uncomfortability or insecurities but in contumplation of how I'm treating others. I don't want to be selfish, but I don't want to not try at all either.
