There is nothing wrong with being selfish. People who call themselves selfless are fooling themselves. Even if you give away everything and remain anonymous, it is still a selfish act because everything you do caters to your own ego to make you FEEL benevolent. Selfishness is not something to be ashamed of. You can be look out for yourself and still act honorably. It is not cynical. It is called being honest to your own feeling.
