(From my book of Aphorisms- 'Thoughts To Make You Think' By Helen Leigh - http://thoughtstomakeyouthink.doomby.com - Chapter One - Personal Development)
Wanting to be 'Special' is selfish, it means you are willing to exclude others for the sake of you being exclusive.
It means that you want to be singled out at the expense of others because of your own insecurity.
If you need attention from someone go get it, don't hold people to serve only you and think of only you, or your Out.
Don't hold someone to like just you, how boring for them; and for you.
Life is about sharing ..
Inclusion.. Not exclusion
