Whether it is bad to be the egoist?

the Egoist - as are a lot of in this word of a negative! It is possible to translate this word as adherent of the Ya (from armor. - an ego) and therefore the egoist we call the one who cares only for himself, ignoring interests of people around. There is a lot of examples of egoism, everyone represents what is it and to describe symptoms there is no sense. But whether you reflected that ALL OF US are EGOISTS ...

Imagine any case where you have a choice how to arrive. For example: distribution of holidays. At anybody it is planned nothing, but all would like in the summer. Approached you first of all. There is a lot of options, but it is possible to consider three main:

1) You call summer month and you are not loaded. Here motives are clear - it is necessary to me, and all. Everyone on my place would act this way.

2) You suggest to gather and discuss to whom more essentially to have a rest in the summer. Here motives can be different - can, you want to let know to colleagues that you in one boat also have to be considered with each other, at the same time colleagues, probably, will estimate your gesture...

A, maybe, you just do not want to feel moral discomfort on the subject of how managed with fellow workers?

3) Say that to you all the same, and you take yourself what will remain - there is also it!

Because is some internal fear not to please colleagues and illusion that your gesture will be estimated...

All the matter is that there are motives lying on a surface (low, as a rule), those that infringe upon interests of people around, and there are also more deep (when to the person the clear conscience and a peace of mind are more important), and they are often directed to forgetting also about people around.

It turns out that from all people (that is, from all egoists) we call egoists of those who, observing the interests, are not considered with ours. And all egoists think only of themselves, and it is also inconvenient to kind person to be angry as angry - kind.

Each of us has internal barriers which are not allowing to do some favorable is material, but the acts aggravating conscience. To deceive the one who trusts you, technically very simply, but as conscience will torment after that!

Here so everything simply and turns out - the these internal barriers, the big bans and restrictions are higher we to ourselves constructed. And these bans do not allow us to make what with ease is done by less conscientious citizens...

Often it plays with us a mean joke - not everyone with ease will respond to rudeness or will get into rigid dispute with the opponent because some are too polite and brought well up for this purpose. too there are many quite decent people who will easily put to the place of any impudent fellow...

But, anyway, all people arrive exactly as it is easier him. And if some acts look as a peresilivaniye of, so we, people around, we cannot just make out motivation which induces the person to make this or that choice....

Therefore - be not afraid to be egoists, be just slightly more human!
