Selfishness?/Egoísmo?



Many times I wonder if I am mistaken about people and relationships.


I have always thought of myself as an open-minded and kind person, who has always been there for anyone who has needed a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen to their troubles... always there for whatever came my way and would help unburden others of their pains, difficulties or lack of company and understanding from those around them.


But at times I really wonder how much those people I have helped and given a helping hand to haven't been selfish... and are selfish most of the times, not caring about my feelings towards them. As, is it right to run to good old Jeannie when in difficulty and then ignore her completely when life is smiling at them?


I honestly couldn't care if that was the case or not. But it does hurt to realize that I am used many times for selfish purposes... and will always be because it makes me feel good to be there for others, in spite of everything...




Muchas veces me he cuestionado si estoy tan errada acerca de la gente y las relaciones humanas.


Siempre me he considerado una persona amable y abierta, que siempre ha estado para los que han necesitado una mano amiga, un hombro sobre el cual llorar, un oído que escuchara sus problemas... siempre ahí para el que se acercara buscando que lo ayudara a quitarse de encima el peso de sus penas, dificultades o la falta de compañía y entendimiento de los que lo rodean.


Pero hay momentos en los que realmente me pregunto hasta qué punto esa gente que he ayudado no ha sido egoísta... y lo son la mayoría de las veces, no importándoles lo que yo pueda sentir por ellos. Ya que, está bien correr a la divina de Jeannie sólo cuando están en problemas e ignorarme completamente cuando la vida les sonríe?


Honestamente no me importa si ese es el caso o no. Pero duele darme cuenta que muchas veces soy usada con fines egoístas... y siempre lo seré, porque me hace bien estar ahí para los otros, a pesar de todo...

Se a lo que te referis, y es triste darse cuenta, pero solo pienso en que uno es feliz con lo que hace y nos hace sentir muy bien, estar para el otro, pero el dia de mañana cuando no estemos ahi se van a dar cuenta de que existiamos, y cuanto valiamos, la conciencia tuya siempre va a estar limpia.
Te quiero y te valoro tal cual sos, y espero no ser una de esas personas.
Te quiero mucho corazon!!!

Por eso fue que dije que seguirán usándome egoístamente, porque en le resultado final, siempre me hace bien estar ahí para quien lo necesita, se den cuenta o no de quién soy y lo que valgo. Y OBVIO que no sos una de esas, tonta!!!!! Algunos de ellos leen este blog y no tiene los cojones para dejar un comentario... y otros, mejor ni hablar de los otros...
Yo también te quiero mucho, Ani!

Jeannie, this world we live in is full of selfish people who only seek their own well-being. But that does not mean that you should change or stop being so kind-hearted. help others and feel great at it! There is no better reward!

It's something on human misery that u r talking about. A kinda a misery in one's spirit can make such a thing. I myself have some cases in my family like that. When my mom tried doing sth good to provide relief or sth people take advantage and never return not even to say a thank-you stuff. Or just like u said, come when are in need.

kisses good friend.

NN, true, there is no better reward than the feeling I have left when having been of need to those dear to me.
And William, you are right. It has to do with miserable people, with a condition in some people. Take care my good friend! And as usual, thank you for caring about what I have to say!! =)

Oh tell me about it Jeannie!
I have come across SO MANY people like this in my life so far and for sure will continue to do so!
The world is full of these degenerate people that feed off of other, they are just like those little fish that feed off of a sharks arsehole!
I have no time for these kinds of people, it's unfortunate that they can't improve the quality of their own lives by also helping others instead of take, take, take!
The world is so full of Cunts! (excuse the French! but us British do love to curse! haha)Muchos Besos my Dear Friend! :)

Jeannie dijo...

Oh my, Donnie!!! Ithink I pulled a string there with what I posted, haven't I? I had never heard you curse this way... but if it helps to take off some pressure, you are very welcome to do so here.
Take care, my Dearest!

Dks dijo...

Haha!
Pleased you liked it Dear Jeannie!
I was actually joking, this is my warped sense of humour!
But of course these people do infuriate me... as my Grandmother used to say "There's no excuse for bad manners!" - of course that was in her lifetime when people were more polite and things in life were more simple.
Muchos B's!!
