Ultimately Selfish Nature

From deeper thoughts, it always ends up being about ourselves.

When we help others, we feel good about ourselves.
When we ignore others, we feel we are selfish since selfishness is bad and we don't want to be associated with bad things, we decide to help instead.

Both characters are selfish
Life happens to revolve around each other but whatever decision we make will always be about ourselves, whether we decide to do good or bad. Life is about continuously running (from what is bad) and chasing (after what is good). That's why where there's good, there's bad. Where there's pleasure, there's pain.

Everyone continues to talk about what is right and what is wrong but little do they realize or admit that what they mean by right is whatever that is self-beneficial and whatever they mean by wrong is whatever that is self-detrimental.

Just like saying "Please do right". What this actually means at deeper level of consciousness is "I don't care whether you're wrong, just do whatever that is right to me." That is when you see people arguing about justice and fairness for themselves but they will turn a blind eye when injustice happens to others unrelated to them.

Justice and fairness are expected and demanded by everyone. Nevertheless, justice and fairness have always remain very much one-sided. This leads to the question does true love exist?
