Empowering Our Dreams in a Self-Centered World


I have talked about the selfish approach of many people and how people are only interested in their goals. You can read my previous post - 'How the self-love of people is destroying world' to know more. We sometimes understand these things in a hard way because initially we think that others will also work for our welfare too but soon, we ralise that it is not true. Throughout our journey in life, we encounter numerous challenging lessons as we mature, and one of the most profound realizations is that individuals tend to prioritize their own aspirations, often sidelining the dreams of others. This innate self-interest can sometimes escalate to a level where certain individuals, driven by their own ambitions, attempt to dismantle the dreams of others. 

Consequently, many find themselves viewing the world through a lens of selfishness, observing a pattern where personal objectives take precedence. It's a curious phenomenon that individuals often espouse different principles when their desires are on the line compared to when others are involved. This duality in perspective is a universal human trait. The core issue arises when this self-interest becomes all-consuming, leaving others struggling to find their footing in the pursuit of their aspirations. In such situations, taking a stand rather than enduring becomes imperative, as enduring can inevitably lead to detrimental health consequences. 

 Acknowledging the inherent selfishness that resides within us all is an essential step towards understanding our nature. However, the real challenge arises when this selfish inclination transforms into an overwhelming force, encroaching on the comfort and well-being of others. Recognizing the perpetuity of a self-interested world is crucial; it's unrealistic to expect self-centered individuals to relinquish their nature for the sake of others. To combat the prevailing egocentrism around us, a shift in our own actions is necessary. Rather than passively accepting the selfish tendencies of others, we must assert ourselves. 

This doesn't entail a naive hope that others will miraculously alter their behavior, but rather a proactive effort to carve out a space for our own dreams amidst the self-serving currents. By doing so, we exert control over our narratives, not allowing the voracity of others to dictate the trajectory of our lives. 

 In conclusion, life's journey teaches us hard lessons, among them the reality of human self-interest. While we can't entirely escape this facet of our nature, we possess the agency to mold our responses. Instead of resigning ourselves to the notion that the world is an inherently selfish place, we can actively navigate the currents of selfishness, pursuing our dreams with determination and resilience.
