In my previous article I examined the advantages and disadvantages of selfish personality. In this article, I look at the other side of the coin, the advantages and disadvantages of the selfless personality.
Advantages of Selfless Personality
Most selfless voluntary benefits are internal benefits. It feels good to help people who are in bad shape. Sometimes the smallest action or caring word can make a big difference in someone's life.
Another thing you should consider being selfless and helping others to build a good karma. For those who do not like the term karma, we can see it as a simple cause and effect. If you do a lot of things, you can expect to get back to you. This is the same wickedness, so it will bring many evil things sooner or later. As you breed, you are reaping.
Perhaps one of the most beautiful benefits you can enjoy is the opportunity to meet and associate with other selfless people. Usually you will not see selfish people volunteering in their time and helping people. It is much easier to have mutually beneficial and satisfying friendships, partnerships, and relationships with people who are interested in you, not just yourself.
Disadvantages of the Selfless Personality
Unfortunately, not all puppies and rainbows are selfless. You have to deal with selfish people who take advantage of your kindness. In some cases, a person provides a one-off help to the person who expects them to do whatever they want. If you have to tell them inevitably they will be very angry.
Even those who are not selfish may try to spend time and energy as monopoly, sometimes unconsciously. They can only enjoy their company and the good feelings you give them so they want to get the most out of them. In general, it is a gentle yet firm reminder that there are people and responsibilities in your life that will take care of the matter.
Another disadvantage is that it is selfless that you are thinking of others and ignoring your own needs. You must remember to take care of yourself to continue helping others.
The Bottom Line
For myself, the advantages of selfless personality significantly outweigh the disadvantages. As long as you remember standing up and taking care of yourself, becoming a selfless man will help make the world a better place.
