Many people, they think it’s noble, spiritual, or righteous to make serving others your purpose in life. I believe nothing could be further from the truth.
I can’t think of anything more sick, twisted, and dysfunctional than the people who go through their whole lives trying to keep others happy. I tried that for years, back when my self-esteem was in the basement. I finally learned that it is the quickest route to neurosis.
You must not sacrifice yourself to others because that is depravity, a certain state of moral corruption and degradation. It is a sure symptom of mental illness. Do you really get that?
And likewise for the opposite situation. You shouldn’t ask others to sacrifice for you, for that is no less sick and depraved. Corrupting the morals of others is no less evil than corrupting your own.
Your moral prerogative is to make sure your own needs are met. Only then can you really help anyone else. And if everyone lived by this philosophy, you’d be amazed at what a wonderful place the world would be.
So please give all this some critical thought. And we’ll pick up there on the next post.
