In the previous article I looked at some of the advantages and disadvantages of being selfish man. In this article, I will look at the other side of the coin, the pros and cons of being an unselfish person.
Advantages of Being an Independent Person
The majority of the benefits you receive from being unselfish are internal benefits. It works very well when you can help people in a bad situation. Sometimes the slightest action or concern may be important in someone's life.
Another thing to consider is building good karma by being selfless and helping others. For those who do not resemble the concept of karma, you can regard it as a simple cause and effect. If you do a lot of good, you can expect it to be returned to you. No matter the evil thing, making lots of evil things will reach you sooner or later. You harvest what you sow.
Perhaps one of the most popular benefits you can enjoy being unselfish and the opportunity to meet and connect with other unknown people. You do not usually find people who volunteer their time and help people. It is much easier to have mutual and enjoyable friendship, cooperation and communication with people who care about you and not just themselves.
Disadvantages of being an Free Person
Unfortunately, altruistic is not all puppies and rainbows. You have to deal with selfishness who take advantage of your kindness. In some cases, it will help the individual to help you do anything they want, whenever they want. When you will inevitably tell them no, they become very angry.
Even people who are not selfish can try to consume time and energy, sometimes unconsciously. They really could really enjoy the company and the good feelings you give them, so they want to be around you as much as possible. Usually, it's a gentle, yet fixed reminder that there are other people and duties in your life that will take care of this issue.
Another possible disadvantage may be to be so selfless that you only think about others and neglect your own needs. You must remember to take care of yourself so that you can continue helping others.
The Bottom Line
In my mind, the advantages of being an unselfish man are heavier than the overalls. As long as you remember to stand up for yourself and take care of yourself, becoming an independent person will help make the world better.
