Is it wrong to be a little selfish in life?If we observe the society deeply, one factor is very strongly prevalent in it. Not all, but most of the families are burdening one or two family members for every duty while others are enjoying their lives freely. It is not about financial side only, but shouldering day to day duties are also ignored by most of the members especially talking about the established younger generation.
In such a situation those who take up responsibilities get overburdened and have no personal life because of serving everyone's expectations, they lose their life's precious present moment. Our religious scriptures say that one who fulfils every duty receives blessings and in return they lead a happy life. Is it a fact?
I notice that those who do superficial duties and enjoy every bit of their personal life are the happiest of all. Those who sincerely perform every duty are the most burdened lot. Even those who are regularly taken care of are never fully satisfied and happy. They continuously complain about something or the other.
So, what a person should be in life, a little selfish or completely ignore self-desires and be dutiful?
