Sometimes we need to like what others likeMost of us have some specific likes and dislikes and we always prefer to do things which we like. Be it watching a movie, studying a subject, our hobbies, activities in daily life etc are always tailored by us as per our own likes. Doing the things which we like no doubt gives us immense pleasure and satisfaction.
But we do not live our life solitary and we are always bonded with our family members, friends and relatives around us and we do have attachment with them. So can we always go about doing the things as per our own likes? No, I would say we sometimes may not have that luxury as we are living with our family, friends and relatives in this world and we do care about them. Hence, we may need to do the things at times as per other's likes and not only our own likes.
In a family sometimes parents may need to watch cartoon show on TV along with their child just to make little one happy. We always tell our children that movies, music and songs of our old time were best but for the pleasure of our children we may need to listen their generation songs, dance along with them and also watch movies as per their taste just to make them happy. Forget about family sometimes among friends there may be different likes and dislikes, but a good friend will not hesitate to do things against their likes if he is a true friend and cares about his friend's happiness.
Off course doing the things as per others like is not easy as we need to work against our tastes and preferences, but it is a sacrifice which every human should make to keep their near and dear ones happy. Always doing things as per our own likes and not caring about other preferences is a selfish act but compromising and getting along with other to engage in activities they like is a selfless service to the relationship.
