The Truth about Us All


From Bite Sized Happiness

“We should all walk around with a sign posted on our foreheads that reads:

“Please don’t take anything I say or do personally.

I’m as self-oriented as you are.

Everything I say and do is consciously or unconsciously aimed at pleasing me, even when it seems like I’m trying to please you.”




My two cents: My daughter believes altruism does not exist in humans.

We always have our selfish motives.

For me, loving kindness exists to alleviate the suffering of others.

I do agree humans are not very altruistic as a whole.

Any thoughts?
