Ramblings of an eternal pessimist
nope. You know, Poppy asked the same thing on her blog (basically) the other day. That is not selfish. Getting happiness out of helping others is the nice side effect of doing good in the world.You always have to look at the ultimate outcome, since it's about the other person and not you. Did they become a better person with your help? That's all the world wants from us. To help others. Anything that comes of that outside of scope is irrelevant. That's why it's okay to feel good when helping others feel happy.Unless you are stifling yourself, or hurting yourself...
Thanks. I think that helps.
The only way it would be selfish is if you are only helping others because you think you have something to gain. Doing things to make others happy because you enjoy there happiness, is one of the only truly wonderful things left in life.
It is not selfish at all. So start making me happy.
I keep telling you to come visit. I'll make you very happy.
