Kindly indulge me for a moment while I spout some profanity to blow off steam: what an effing shitty day.
It wasn’t all that terrible though. More like a ‘meh’ day. But what pissed me off just now as I reviewed the day’s events was just how selfish everyone is. That’s not hyperbole. I mean, seriously, all of us, every single human who ever lived, you and me alike, are innately selfish. That is just the human condition. I know not a single selfless person in the entire world. Because even when someone appears to be acting selflessly, the act is driven by some form of selfish desire: you work at a soup kitchen because you want to use this as PR for your business; you over-deliver at work to get a raise; you go to church and pray for your soul to be saved because, if you swing that way, you want in on the afterlife. Even the most seemingly giving act, while asking for nothing in return, is driven by the ego’s unrelenting demand for self-satisfaction.
