This is a “quick to make you think” blog!
Altruistic: now isn’t that a word you’d love to be described as? I know I would. So, what do you think it takes from our selves to become altruistic? Well, putting others before our self of course! So, I ask you to ask yourself: do I make myself too busy for my friends?
A good friend of mine got me thinking about this lately and I think too often we are all (yes, myself included) guilty of this—being too busy for the people we love. In this fast-paced world we live in today we tend to get wrapped up in what I have to do today and we tend to forget about what we should be doing, which, in terms of altruism, would be looking out for our fellow man.
I’m sure we can all think of a friend of ours that we love dearly, but sometimes feel as if he/she is too busy for us. I hate to think I have given that impression to some of my friends in the past (I’m sure I’m as guilty of it as anyone else).
So, it’s just something for us all to consider and think about when we are faced with making decisions each day, or when a friend comes to us with a favor, or even just to talk. Let’s reconsider “being too busy.”
