Love, compassion, kindness are often seen as weaknesses in our society today. If a person is cold, self absorb, stand-offish, and focuses on making money at the expense of losing touch with their compassionate side they are hailed as successes, by today’s standards.
this is so true unfortunately, i work in sales in a builders merchant and i'm told i'm pretty good at my job, i don't actually like working in sales but i like looking after people and i like to make sure they have the materials they need so they can go about their jobs without any hassle, and if things do go wrong (whether it be a mistake or not) i feel like its my duty to do everything possible to help them out, and because of my willingness to help people my work collegues always come to me when they need help, and i would never turn them away, if its a task they can do themselve's i will show them how to do so they know for next time,
i never ever want to be any different, even if i'm a bit overworked i would still make time when someone needs my help,
But now i'm being told i have to BE MORE SELFISH by my boss, this made me so angry and i told him i'll never be able to be more selfish and i don't want to be.
whats the world coming to, eh?.....

Thank you for bumping this older thread as I hadn't seen it before.
Just last night I had a dream about talking animals ( only happened once before, many years ago) and yet these kind of dreams fill me with a love that lasts for days.
Have a little Faith in us
Love knows no boundaries but is hindered by the reality that others reflect of the world we live in.
Breaking the cycle starts within each and everyone of us.
