Selfishness is actually good.
Or, it is not as bad as we think.
And I can prove it.
We all know, selfishness involves being extra careful about personal happiness only.
Now, consider the following situations.
- you are fit but one of your relatives is hospitalized.
- you are in a good job but your son or, daughter is jobless.
- your house is clean but your locality is dirty.
And this list is literally endless.
You can add more similar situations for consideration in this list.
Will you find “personal happiness” in any of the above situations?
Although none of the above-mentioned situations affect you directly.
Can you sense something new?
I am sure you can.
We all are universally connected to work together, grow together, and live together.
Therefore, we cannot grow and become happy alone in the true sense.
If we truly care about our personal happiness, we must care about others’ happiness, as well.
Now, since selfishness involves being extra careful about personal happiness and personal happiness further involves others’ happiness, we can easily conclude that the more selfish one becomes the more he or, she will consider others’ happiness as well.
That’s exactly why I think selfishness is good.
Well. When it is applied in the true sense.
