    Is it selfish to buy gifts for yourself?

    I often get stuff for myself,and my parents bought gifts for me.but I never gave them gifts.This year I bought myself this ticket to being b&,and still remain in selfish. So what do you think of me?
    - do you buy presents for yourself?
    - do you hate spending money on others?

    Depends, if you're asking yourself this, then you're insecure by it. By your own definition that would be being selfish.

    I just think it's polite to get things for other people. Usually comes back to pat you on the back when you do as well, has for me.

    so, it's might be the time for me to buy gifts for others.

    Of course it's selfish.

    What you're really asking, is if it's okay to be selfish. The fact that you bring this question to a board of strangers tells me you already have your answer, and you don't like that answer very much.

    Pathetic spamming attempt. I'll give you 2/10 and even that's generous.

    Yes. You are a very selfish person. You should think of what you have done.

    Technically, everything we do can be seen or motivate by selfishness.

    I think you're feeling a touch guilty about not buying your parents stuff when you bought yourself something. That's just how your post reads. ...I'm curious as to why you linked to the pocket knife. But perhaps that indeed is spam. o_O
