RE: is it wrong of me
Don't berate yourself for feeling the way you do; in that wise it is not wrong for you to have the feelings (and even the wish) that you have. Our emotions arise unbidden from subconscious machinery not always in tune with what our intellect "knows" should be right.

But our intellect DOES "know" what is right more often than our emotions impel us in the right direction, so when our emotions and intellect grate, follow intellect. KC and others are right on the money, the occasion is not the place for personal emotional theatrics. I wouldn't call you selfish for having the feelings you have - but I would call you selfish if you gave them priority - at this venue.

The sheer fact your intellect is raising the question at all answers the question.
