Being selfless is a way of life, a lifestyle choice and a single act and that is what the universe expects us to do.
By thinking about and helping others, without a desire or a need to get something back, means we are being selfless. Being selfless is something we should all aspire to. But to become selfless, we must choose to work on and like ourselves. We cannot be selfless without it.
We may often neglect ourselves, often because we don’t want others to think we are being selfish, but others thinking that is completely selfish. We’re perfectly entitled to think about ourselves.
But taking care of ourselves is not selfish, it simply means that our needs are being met and that helps us build a solid foundation. By us being able to look after ourselves, we’re best placed to look after others.
For those of us who aren’t happy, but think that giving can make us happy, are sadly mistaken because that will never work. When we give and continue to expect something back, we can never be happy. The act of expecting something back in itself is selfish.
You cannot give unless you have something to give. You also need to mix your passion with being practical. If you want to give more to others, you have to give more to yourself.
