    In this world, we all human beings live to keep ourselves happy.. thats what i think.
    I mena for example : We study because we want good grades so tht we can have a good life in future and make everyone proud of us which will eventually lead to OUR own happiness.. Dont u think we all humans are selfish? I mean when someone dies we dont cry because tht person died but because we fear tht we will not be happy anymore without tht specific person.
    Now some of you might say that some people do sacrifice their wishes and other stuff for other people so that the other person is happy....for example if we are in a relationship...we love tht person to such an extent tht we are ready to sacrifice anything for him or her... be it from our money to our time..
    but thts also bczo it eventually leads to our own happiness.. I mean if we sacrifice , ppl we love would be happy..and if they're happy wed be happy...

    Are you trying to say... "all love is selfish"?

    If it gives you a good feeling to be good to others - does it matter? Nature obviously programmed us to feel good about being altruistic. That doesn't make it a bad thing.
