I have always been told that whenever I have problems, think of all those people suffering on the other side of the world, those people who have bigger problems than mine. Or when I feel like I lost everything and nowhere to go, think of those who are homeless. Or when I can’t finish my food, think of those who starve, things like that.
Okay, so what’s your point now? That’s just plainly stupid. From a selfish person’s point of view, why would I consider them? Why would I even care? What’s the whole point? It’s me, here we are talking about. Would it even matter if I think of them? Will my thoughts feed them? Will it make them feel better? Will it make ME feel better? No. I’ll be just attracting all these negative thoughts even more. A lose-lose situation right in front of my face!
Hey, I am a very selfish person. Self-centered, more even. It even comes to a point when I won’t care about other people at all. Hah! Okay, consider donating to charity. How sure are you that the money you send out reaches those people? With every charity group asking for donations, how sure are you that they are legit charity institutions? Again, lose-lose situation. I lose my money, the only money I have and they still suffer. Why would I give something I already have to people I wouldn’t even know if they’ll give my stuff to the ones who need it more?
Why do I think like this? Well, yourself is all you’ve got. The more you are vulnerable to other’s situation, the bigger chance that you’ll get cheated on. With that, the more you’ll feel terrible. So why the hell would I care for others, when I can’t even take care of myself? This’d get negative reactions or whatever because most of you are hypocrites and won’t admit to yourselves that what I am saying is true.
Come on! How come there are still millions of people starving? Hah! Probably because there are a lot people who thinks like I do. Don’t hate on me and admit it, a lot of people are selfish, self-centered. What a shame, right? Are you selfish?
This selfishness I am blabbering about is pointless. I am just thinking out loud.
Did you get my point? No? Bye.
