Serving others can certainly be a pleasure if we are able to commit ourselves to the process of “giving” and get into the proper mindset.
It’s a pretty basic principle to follow – nothing new here – but Lord knows there will be a time where the tables will be turned and we will need some help from others in which we would welcome the words, “my pleasure.”
Maybe this indeed questions altruism at it’s core. Can we truly benefit – feel better – after going out of our way to help others? Absolutely. It’s scientifically proven that endorphins are released from our brain to give us those “feel good” feelings inside.
There’s nothing wrong with that. I’ll take that altruistic behavior in a minute.
How about you?
By the way, it’s been my pleasure.
