It depends on the individual. Some like it that way and feel they have gained more by how they treat others and also any riches they may have reaped. Others do come to realize there is more to life than being selfish, not getting along with others and being self indulgent.

What if your the other girl?

If your the "other" girl then get out and end this as soon as possible. Nothing will ever become of this no matter how much he says or how much you hope. He is with the person he is with because he wants to be and has no intentions of leaving her for you but for his own selfish reasons is keeping you on the side for his own selfish reasons and not because he wants you. You have to realize this is a bad situation all around and you need to get out - focus your future interest on single people. Think of it this way - if you had someone would you want them having a "other" girl on the side.....treat people the way you would want to be treated.

What is the difference between self-obsessed and selfish person?

Self-obsessed is when somebody cares more about themself than other people. Selfish is being greedy, or hording something, money for instance. These two are very different. Actually, I would think they are generally the same. To me when a person is selfish they are also self obsessed and vice verse. There is such a wide range of things that one can be selfish or obsessed about and the question was the difference between self-obsessed so the answer is nothing. A selfish person is "selfish" and a "self" obsessed person is "selfish". To me they are the same thing. Its anything that has to do with that person that's usually what rules their world. These type people are also greedy, very needy, attention seekers and usually extremely narcissistic.

How can you not be mad at a cheating partner?

Realize you are being selfish. This is something your partner wants. Would you be angy if your partner went to see a movie you didn't particularly want to see?

Be sure you can address your problems clearly in a discussion with them.

How did Selena Quintanilla feel about being a star at such a young age?

As a fan of her music, I do remember her saying that she had no regrets of becoming a star at a young age but she wished she could have had a normal childhood and missed out on playing with other kids her age instead she had to practice and rehearse. Selena was really, really happy and had a down to earth personality, but she did not seem to realize the outburst of her superstar status. It was like she did understand her popularity but did not realize that her popularity would eventually become global. She is now missed by many people who have known her when she was alive and also the new fans that have just recently started to enjoy and understand her ongoing legacy.
