Selflessness is not really being careless about oneself, but the inward ability to give up one`s own interests to please others. Its some thing many persons do without necessarily thinking about; seen especially in lovers and parents to their children. Its easier to be selfless when we are just denying ourselves from enjoying something or some activity. But how easy is it to be selfless when we are putting our selves in danger?
I had an “opportunity” to be tried on this very common scenario. Frankly there are very few opportunities of getting some thing without effort or getting a really good item at a very low cost. Some years back,I bought a second hand car at a “give away price” . It looked good and totally clean. On seeing it while I drove, my workmate thought it was new and would not believe that it was a second hand vehicle.
The car gave me the worst problems I have ever encountered with a car. I probably spent half the buying price making repairs on it.
It may be any thing; a house, an educational course, anything! Please don`t get me wrong. There still exist good affordable priced items/services. One just has to be extra careful.
Many examples can go for people. Use extra judgement when dealing with extremely generous strangers or cunning individuals.
