So its nearly 10am where I am at the moment and since I do night shift, it means I've hit the danger zone, where I need to force myself to try and
sleep... I at least need an hour or two's sleep!
Anyway, I'm about to try and get some sleep, but decide to go outside first (for whatever reason), then I see that there's this poor little bird stuck
in the greenhouse and frantically trying to escape ... "poor thing" I think to myself... so I (seemingly) humbly sacrifice 2 minutes of my perceived
very valuable time to walk a few metres and lift up the plastic sheeting to the greenhouse and give this bird a way to get free....
Thing is, in the mere minutes it took me to carry out this obviously incredibly compassionate act, the stupid bird was gone and had found a way to
escape by its own self.
I got to be honest, I was kinda pissed... I go to all this trouble and sacrifice my perceived valuable time to help this poor helpless little bird to
free itself, then the stupid little thing just disappears... I never even got to witness the bird fly away, which means my compassionate act of
kindness was in vain! Right?
I mean, this little bird, who btw was stupid enough to get itself stuck in the greenhouse in the first place, has the audacity to just fly off,
without me getting to observe what a brilliant and compassionate human being I obviously am..... How selfish!!!
I know, I know...
But to my defense, I don't think I'm 'more' narcissistic than most... I just think I have a better understanding of how the human mind operates, than
most other people... Compassionate acts in general, are just a thing most people do to feel superior... Or to gain praise from there peers.
Truth be told, we are all the centre of our own universe.... So are there for in reality, extremely narcissistic creatures by nature.
