I've always looked up to genuinely selfless people. People who listen instead of talk and people who give instead of take. And they do it willingly, without expecting anything in return. I have always looked up to, but also envied this kind of people. I've always wished I was more like that. I wish I was completely selfless, and that it'd come naturally. I wish I was a better listener, without ever having to force it. I wish could see greatness in absolutely everyone.

But I never feel like I'm as good as I want to be. :( However, I do feel better about that than I did a few years ago. I've become better. But I want to become even better!

Sometimes I fear that I can never become like that. So I want to make up for it by doing selfless acts that speak for themselves. A while ago I donated blood. It made me feel great for a while. Now I'm thinking of becoming a bone marrow transplant. Maybe I feel like I'll never be good enough unless I sacrifice myself for the sake of others.



...Is this normal?

P.S.
Sorry about the thread creating frenzy btw. I'm on fire! Ahem...

@Solitude315

Thanks! I appreciate your insight...I'm taking that advice to heart and I will think about it. :)

It's always a matter of wanting to be different, but at the same time wanting to blend in and also realizing that we're all the same.

If you really like helping others try doing constructive things like volunteering in other countries (if you can) or just in local places. Maybe gear your career towards something humanitarian so you can help others everyday. ^_^
Yeh, that's the plan! Thanks for your post!

Type 4s in the building (possibly)

Btw I do really like your threads. Better than a lot of garbage ones I've made. Sometimes I used to wonder if I was being a good person or not. But really, it was more of a feeling like I wasn't doing good enough for the planet. Or that I wish I wanted to feel more motivated to accomplish whatever kind of charitableness I had in mind. I would worry a lot about not doing enough for the world really. I also had this idea in my mind that I should want to help and volunteer more than I actually wanted to. Like I should want to do it. If that makes sense. It might be along the lines of what you're talking about.
Yeah I get it. :) Although I've finally gotten to the point that I genuinely feel like I want to participate. I think you can achieve that once you get to enjoy the feeling of purpose you get from it.
