Do we deny ourselves for others?

How many times do we attempt to be everything to everyone

While sacrificing who you truly are?

Why is it we try so hard to keep everybody else happy

Even though it may cost us finding true happiness within ourselves,

Is loving others so much more important than loving ourselves

Is that not a betrayal of our own reason for existential being.

  1. Actually, it’s not a silly question. Family “obligations” can drag you down. Family does not always deserve the sacrifice, having not put enough into the equation. It’s hard to not be weighed down by what we think is responsibility. I no longer have any and now I am free.

  2. Silly question, really. No man is an island, unfortunately although I would love to be one. But if you have a family, you are duty bound to do your bit, again and again… Impossible to be selfish in that set up.

Anthropology Of Love

A little philosophical, a bit anthropological, perhaps sociological? But for sure... hell-lot-of poetry!

Bare Bones Blog of Philosophy

This blog is intended to be wiry. It’s only about philosophy. There will be no gimmicks. I will write as if from a monastery: contemplation is the task; the fluster and bluster of the world is silenced. Yet the blog is also a workspace of critical inquiry and exploration. I don't claim to have solved any philosophical problems.
