Selflessness

Image
It is good to be selfless but it does not mean one has to be people-pleaser.

Personal happiness is not defined by other people but by our respective needs.

Many of us want to be approved and accepted in our social circles hence we try to do almost anything just to get the nod of those people whom we seek to please. 

Selflessness is a virtue only if the giver does not get abused nor used.

Oftentimes, you go out of your way by not saying "no" to a friend even if "yes" means causing you a lot of disadvantage.

Learn to assert what is justly right for yourself too. 

Do not over bend just to accommodate other people.

What is important is that you are always fair and caring with others, meaning, you genuinely care about making other people happy and not becoming a reason for their problems.
Learn to love and respect yourself too. There is no harm in acknowledging what you rightfully deserve.

The Power of the Human Mind

Human intelligence has no limit to juxtapose on any given situation whether or not the views are popular or not. 
There is always a conflict of perspective for the simple reason that every individual is unique. 
This just simply proves the fact that the human mind is capable of diversified reasoning. 
The human mind will not stop searching for questions and the more inquisitive it is, the more it gets sharpened. 
I recall one professor of mine in my post-graduate study who said that if the mind stops asking questions, brain cells will die, hence it is important that everyone must have an avenue to hone their cerebral talents. 
So just go on exploring facts and details, for this will help the permeability of learning by contrast to take place. 
Remember friends, knowledge is not always attained through agreement. :)
