It's ugly

Selfishness is the source of most interpersonal conflict. Someone is taking something from us (materially, emotionally, socially, etc.) that we don't want to give, and we fight to keep or gain our desires. Unselfishness is the source of most interpersonal harmony. Think about the people you really like - even famous people you don't know personally. Usually the reason you like them is because they are gracious and kind, and give of themselves. If you want to be a harmonious, likable person, you must be unselfish.

Selfish is ugly.

As I go about my day today, I’ll try to think about potential conflicts as a result of my own selfishness. And that the only way to succeed in selflessness is to replace self with Christ. Instead of self-centered, Christ-centered. Christfulness—full of Christ.

Philippians 2:3-5
       Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
       Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
       Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus.
