Fleeting thoughts that demonstrate why I am not a great person, but perhaps I am alright.

My hair stylist details the latest break-up in her 3-year-long on-again/off-again relationship, and I think, "Is her heartbreak going to fuck up my hair?"
The guy I've been making out with, but with whom I'm not sure if we really share any emotional connection although he has indicated that he may be sure about the connection he feels with me: "Can we just hook up so I can lose weight?"
Upon realizing that I am not a fantastically good person thinking such thoughts: "Does debating whether or not my actions are righteous and for a common good effectively null and void the negative karma created by such horrible thoughts?"
I guess thoughts are okay. Actions, however, need to benefit more than the self.
