Being selfless means being focused on the needs of others, rather than our own needs. It is one of the most endearing qualities we will possess.
It is important we are selfless. It is important we put others first. That doesn’t mean we neglect ourselves; we can still do both. People who are selfless are giving. It is within all of our grasps. It is the spiritual way.
Selfless people are ready to put others first and will if they have to, express concern for others. Selflessness helps us to expand our thinking and how we perceive our world. We put people first because that’s right, because we’re generous and because we’re kind.
People who are selfless think about how their actions will affect others. It means they want to judge less. Selflessness is an important key to relationships, friendships and marriage. It helps keep relationships real, keeps individuals grounded and humbled.
To be selfless, listen more and practice being kind. Choose to perform random acts of kindness, give without expecting back, be patient, and treat others how you would like to be treated.
Selflessness is essential if we are to find contentment and fulfillment, but it can be overlooked, because others take advantage of those of us who are.
