Consider oneself less, lest others perception of you will be of a mongering nature- Selfish.
Selfishness is the inclination towards oneself.
But to what extent does an act qualify to be selfish?
If unclear, act selfless.
Consider yourself less and others’ perception of you shall be just.
Isn’t that hypocritical?
To what extent does an act qualify to be selfless?
Well, that’s an easy say.
What of- which act does a man perform and not consider himself; whether last or even first?
The problem others have is yourself being first.
The hypocrisy that lies within is ‘self’.
Selfishness or selflessness, to what extent does an act commit to be either?
Is it even a matter?
Because the very innate of human is the sober reflection of self in the prism of life.
Selfish or selfless, the words themselves have ‘self’ therein-
If a man does good, he does for himself;
And an act today is a consideration for tomorrow.
So then, which of them has no ‘self’ thereof?
If a man considers himself less, he is a hypocrite.
If he considers himself first, he is also a hypocrite.
Which is greater, does it matter?
Self is everywhere.
You need not agree.
However, look at the very innate of man.
It is carved beautifully within.
Whatever side you want to view it;
Whether from your side or the perception of others;
Whether for the image you want to portray or the true nature you want to slay;
Accept or deny it, there is one word left astray- Hypocrisy!
And it is an innate of man.
I only judge because one is clearly visible than the other.
How hypocritical of me?
