Do you have a specific ambition or goal in life to help others or do something that isnt directly for yourself?, i.e. not 'i want to get a job and have a family'. Do you feel you are destined to do something like help other people less fortunate than you, or help with environmental conservation?

Im interested to know because ive never considered it and been very selfish but im thinking differently now. Whats the point in existing if you cant make a change?

I always help people new to my neighborhood move in/move out. I also help with yard work.

Why? Feels good man.

If I end up being in a successful band or if I become an actor, both of which I want to be (and hopefully will be *crosses fingers ), I have a goal that I want to repay my parents for all they have done. Possibly buy them a new house for their own.

I wonder what possible events in the Pit could've caused that to happen.

When you saw me sleeping
thought I was dreaming
of you...

That's quite a black-and-white point of view there, that living anything but a life of philanthropy is selfish. I personally choose to work toward my (albeit changing) goals and values in life whilst being a positive, helpful and upbuilding person to those around me.

Or is that selfish of me? Hmm.

Eh, no i meant for people who are in dire need to help them survive, deal with illness, deal with hunger or similar. Not some emo kid who doesnt have a job and recieves state benefits and tries to get freebies for his lame band.

I also have the exact same goal. I also want to just make everyone I meet smile and make people feel good.

But at the same time I'm very selfish haha

Well surely the solution could've been solved by an agree to where you are present at the gig in possession of a shotgun incase anything got damaged...

Anywho, that issue's over, and it was a stab at fun

I've never actually set any goal of being selfless, but i find myself always willing to help someone.

I would like to help poor musicians with good music record their music. free. I have the means, I just need some poor people and a little more time.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

I used to be pretty selfish, but somewhere along the way I made a wrong turn and became really nice and helpful to others.

I find people were more grateful when I was more selfish and helped them less(now they are desensitized), which is why I'm starting to go back to my former self, who I liked more.

Everything you do is selfish.

Even if you do something completely selfless, if you feel good about yourself because of it, it was selfish because you got something out of it in the end.

It may be hard to believe this, but sometimes there isn't a rewarding feeling.

Being there for someone in pain would be an example.
