I know.. it's hard to believe – even I'm having a hard time fully accepting it. As much as (don't ask me why) I'm comfortable with the image of being an uncaring, lazy, jerk (I judge myself pretty hard) I'm catching myself completely contradicting it.
I've always been willing to help people – if I'm asked, and asked nicely. I have no ambition whatsoever when it comes to helping people that make it seem like you owe them something, or you're obligated to do something, which I think most people can understand and relate to. But if you're geniune, I'm right there by your side.
But lately.. I've noticed myself going much higher above and beyond what is expected. And enjoying it more. See – it's not entirely selfless, I'm earning happiness by helping other people.
It's not just helping people though – I'm trying really hard to treat people the way I want to be treated. Yeah, I fail miserably with some people, but they deserve it! 😛 Try it. Compliment someone on their haircut (mine is awesome btw!), call up someone that you haven't talked to for awhile and just see how their doing, whatever.
If you do something incredible, let me know.. I'll buy you a pasta dinner. You have to come here to redeem it though.
