Should We Spend Spare Time in Self-Improvement or Helping Others?
We should spend our spare time helping others rather than in self-development.
Volunteering is a form of self-development; the two are not mutually exclusive.
Helping others can bring a sense of fulfilment.
Through helping others, we can increase our social circle, and strengthen our sense of connections.
Through helping others, we lose our own selves, and find freedom from our own problems and worries.
Volunteering and lifting others also help us grow to be better leaders.
Through volunteering, we get to experience others' problems and develop a broader perspective of the world and of life.
Volunteering is usually done out of a drive for the individual to feel
better or worthier
; this negates the selflessness and renders the action attempted self-improvement.
Self-improvement is more important, because through developing oneself one can also become a more valuable member of his/her community.
We are intrinsically selfish, and only interested in self-preservation. Self-improvement naturally follows from that.
Most volunteering efforts are like band-aids to fix deeper problems, and their efficacy quickly goes away.
