One of the tragedies of cultures like ours that force altruism on us is that we learn not to ask ourselves what we need to make ourselves happy. We are taught that the happpiness of others is always more important - always. But can you imagine having to live without ever being happy yourself? And then being constantly tortured by the sight of everyone being happy except you? Altruism says this torture should be enjoyable. [!] Fun is the cure for the dementia of altruism. Fun hurts no one and benefits no one but ourselves. It is pure selfishness. In the battle for your soul that is always being fought between altrusim versus selfishness, let selfishness win sometimes. Don't forget to have fun!
