There are billions of people roaming our world, not just one individual. We need to do more for others and keep away from the thought of me. But, why? Why worry about others when we live for ourselves? We indeed live for ourselves, but something that makes life beautiful is caring about others and knowing that we can make the world a better place by being selfless. Selflessness is the act of putting others before yourself, acknowledging that Earth isn’t home to just you, one person.

 

How can we be selfless? There is an easy answer to that question: compliment others, help others, don’t be greedy, share, ask questions that don’t include comments about yourself, being kind, and much more!

 

“Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.” ― Dalai Lama

 

“Selflessness. It should be the basis of every relationship. If a person truly cares about you, they’ll get more pleasure from the way they make you feel, rather than the way you make them feel.” ― Colleen Hoover, Confess

 

“It’s that wonderful old-fashioned idea that others come first and you come second. This was the whole ethic by which I was brought up. Others matter more than you do, so ‘don’t fuss, dear; get on with it’.” ― Audrey Hepburn
