I practice selflessness.
“Real education should educate us out of self into something far finer; into a selflessness which links us with all humanity.
I strive to not only look after my own needs, but also be mindful of those around me. I come through for the people who matter in life and make sure their physical and emotional pains are eased whenever possible - even if that means I have to sacrifice something myself. My happiness is rooted in gratefulness rather than material possessions; it's easy enough for me to see when a need outweighs a want! By living with this mentality, selflessness comes naturally and yields inner joy like no other feeling can provide.
I used to choose myself first, but now I strive for the happiness of others. If a favor is requested or help needed, I am quick with an answer and never turn away anyone in need - no matter how difficult it may be. In order to become more selfless each day, I must think about my reactions when denied support from those around me and come up with ways that will make me less focused on personal gain over helping other people achieve their goals.
