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 –

It is our nature or impulse that when we see someone having a difficult time, our reaction would be to help them. Sometimes we tend not to consider our personal gain; we would leave that behind just to help this person before helping ourselves. I think there’s nothing wrong with that. When we help, it reminds us that we are relatively lucky, it makes us feel connected to others, fulfillment of being generous and it will append a sense of purpose in our life.

But what is our limitation in helping someone? 

What is the disadvantage of being a selfless person?

Unfortunately, being unselfish is not all stars and rainbows.

****Some people will take advantage of your kindness***


***When you say NO, they will tend to get angry ***


***they will monopolize your time and energy as if it is your obligations to take care of the issue***


We might be having those circumstances but let’s not make them reason to prevent helping our friends, family, and the rest. Let’s be reminded that smallest action or caring word can make a big difference in someone’s life. And don’t ever neglect your own needs because first you have to take care of yourself so that you can continue to help others too.
