Helping other people=being selfish?

Recommended Posts

Ok question.....

Do you know when you help other people out, how in the end you feel good about yourself???

Well is that just another way of being selfish?

Like i dont know think about it. why do you help other people? To help them yeah, but to feel good about urself in the end too.

Sorry just wanted to hear some thoughts cause i was talking to my friend and she brought that up for some reason i dont know lol

this kind of talk is way too deep for the bump and ... forum.

i would feel good helping someone i know would help me. i wouldn't feel good helping someone with bad intentions or what i would consider a bad person. nothing wrong with feeling good, don't feel so guilty about it

It's funny you should say that. I just got an e-mail at work about how everyone pitched in and gave money to help this lady blah blah blah.

At the bottom there was a quote that said something to the effect of, "One of the most beautiful things about the human race is that it is impossible to help another without in-turn helping yourself".

I think that's what you were both getting at! :)

Ok i get your point, but what about helping others cause that's what you'd want done to you.

And think about this. When we get old, frail and grey, we'll come to rely on the help of others. IT's not about being selfish... it's about doing on to others as you'd want done on to you.

I love helping others. And usually they'll help me in return, so its all good. But sometimes when they aren't there for me or don't return the favor, i'll turn away.

I don't think it's selfish. Selfishness is FOR the Self, Not directed at others.
