Serious My Way Of Life..

I have a weird way of life you all problablly can find yourself in.
I feel like everyone has something against themselves because most people say that they hate selfish people but i think everyone is selfish, because in real life the most important person in it is yourself because it is your own life and every person i ask has said no my mom is my girlfriend or boyfriend is but its all not true you are the most important person.
I really think its stupid and people really don't think about thing's like that most people dont wanna think about things because it problably makes them scared

Yeah, I've heard the theory that every act- criminal, altruistic, or in between- results from the desire to increase one's own pleasure. It can't be disproven, but I don't personally feel it would do one much good to meditate on it.

Aw, come on, fr0g...give him credit for the two periods and the comma, however moot their appearance might seem.

From what InKY just mentioned, I think this is where that dividing line comes in to do with how close you decide to remain in your animal nature as a human.

In a way, yes, I do agree with you, DD, because I have learned for myself that I am more useful to people around me many times (though not 100% all the time) when I take care of me first.

Thanx For the reply's i agree with you all and sorry for my bad grammar.
Me myself am very in touch with my animal side and i'm selfish.
I agree you can only mean something to someone when you yourself are a 100% happy with yourself, most people disagree with me but that's problably because i dont have that much intellegent people around me.
Again thank you for your reply's and keep replying!

Even though I live in the same country as you do , we Dutch are very open when it comes to some things but sometimes that's just a great farce !

It sucks ! I have that too . . .
and I usually don't even try to discuss any of the things I'm interested in with my friends .
I got my online friends for that ! And some great ones at that !

I've been there: "Ccan I really be the only person who thinks about _____?!" A lot of times I've found that introducing a topic jokingly makes others comfortable with discussing it too- most everything occurs to a person's mind sometime. Sometimes though, you just gotta leave 'em behind.

Yes , but most people are afraid to talk . . .
thinking they will be perceived as weird .
I think that anything is talkable ! As long as you talk serious about a subject . . . however strange you may find it !

now ppl are selfish, it is in their nature, but, think about this also, how many times have you put away your want, and done what your girlfriend or mother askedyou to do, now yes ppl are a selfish bunch, but if we stop and think there are ppl who put pther ppl ahead of them, prolly cause it gives them a better sense of feeling like, hey i just made them better,

hmmm

To do something right for someone uselly means excpecting something back so still in a smal way your doing stuff for yourself every little thing in the world is actually for yourself because your life is your's and no one else's.

That's a very egoist point of view. I like to think that at least some of the time people do things for mutual benefit rather than just for themselves. However, I do agree that real and true altruism is a pipe dream.

Well think about it when you do something for another person it gives you a good feeling doesn't it? so for 10 % your also doing it for yourself.
And i dont think being egocentric is a bad thing..
Being TO egocentric is a bad thing..

Interesting topic..

Can you ever truly commit a selfless act of kindness?

I think most acts of kindness, whether we admit to this or not, are indeed of mutual benefit as Psy-Chan hinted at.

If you are polite to somebody, or kind to somebody, it's likely that same politeness will be returned and vice versa.

I don't believe that this is being egotistical, I believe it's a survival mechanism and that most people won't even realise they are doing it.

In conclusion, I don't think it's selfishness - it's self-preservation.
