Well the reason I placed this topic on the board, is because I am accused of extreme self-denial. I work on Amnesty stuff for hours on end and my self-denial can amount to human rights violations on my part. Because of school, I don't work so much on it, but in the summer I worked for an average of 12 hours straight, from June to August.
I hope self-denial in this case is not construed as narccisim. "Oh,look how altrusic I am, so I am wonderful".
