Realizing selfishness through children

I read a quote the other day from @marriagementor:

“I never realized how selfish I was until I had kids.”

I totally agree with that… even for myself, though I have no children of my own. The difference for me is that I grew up in a family with younger brothers and a sister. I didn’t have to wait until I had my own kids – I realized my selfishness through brothers and sister.

And that, dear friends, is why I’m worried about getting married/having children/starting a family.

Because I already know how selfish I am, and I’m not sure I can drop that. In fact, I’m more sure that I can’t.
