when you finally get to a point
when you put you first
why and how is that selfish
i gave everything up for you
when people pointed out the bad
i defended you by picking out the good
how could you call me selfish when i did all for you
defended you from those who tried to hurt you
gave to you what i couldn't give myself
put a smile on yourself
when i couldn't even put one on mine
for once in my life i say no
to take care of me
and you turn around and say forget me
after all i put up with forget you

I have been fighting with this word for a while as well. I suppose so long as you don't think it's selfish, don't let anyone tell you you are. There is a quote, "you never know what is enough until you know what is more than enough." If they don't appreciate what you've done, they aren't worth your time or energy. stay strong
