Good people are selfish

Setting yourself on fire

Fighting nature

The selfish man

  • You want to donate to charity. But as long as you’re broke, this will always feel bad, and you would want the universe to give you “luck” in return because you’re such a good person. Focus on yourself first, and then give your money without expecting something in return.
  • You want to gift your wife flowers. But you expect something in return (for example sex). A covert contract she doesn’t know about! Have your needs met first, and then gift them without expecting anything. Much more sincere!
  • A friend wants you to help move his furniture. But he still owes you money. You help and expect the money back. Nothing happens. Get the money first, and then help because you want to without covert thoughts.
