How secure asymmetric encryption to yourself?

Yes, this is correct, and what I thought would be the answer.

I was just concerned that an attacker (say, a thief that steals my  
laptop), would have both my secret key and something encrypted with  
that secret key.

I wasn't sure if this would somehow reduce the effectiveness of the  
encryption (even though I use a good passphrase).
