Do you really care about other person much more as you care about yourself?

I don t think so; all what we think, feel and make in this life is strongly in touch with our person, even we can say words like ' i like and love you much more as i love myself' When you say that you can give your life for somebody else, are you sure that you are honest? I don t think so, all what we do, all what we like is about our person; even we can say ' i love you more as i love myself'...this is a lie; i am right or not? To survive, is all what we have in our mind; even we are honest , even we are not honest; i am right again? T o be selfish? this is all what we have and all what make us to survive, to want to go on, even we need support , or somebody else love, we need because we are selfish;

Love yourself first then you can love others, is what I would like to say to all people. However, the priority love must always be to our God. By loving God and loving yourself ,pure love will flow effortlessly with God's bless. However, if it is not meant to be, God may see some flaws with our love and do not want to let is shine. Let us pray that God will show us the way.

You are right about that, love yourself so that you know how to love others, but of course, love God/Supreme Being, then love the world that he gave us. Love the society. Help develop the society for our children to have a better future. Have a nice day.

To be honest, I think I can care about other person much more as I care about myself. Although most people often say that they can give their life for somebody else, but many people can't put the promise into practice because of various unexpected reasons, which is a common phenomenon. But for me, I think I should stick to my promises without any causes. People should practice what they preach, which is the base of being a real man.

Yes, I do care about my hubby and other family members especially my parents and when I say that, I really mean it. So, if I say that I will do anything for the person I love, I am not lying. I don't mean I will do crazy things like hurting myself just because of him. You will be amazed that in certain circumstances there are people who are more than willing to switch places with the persons they really love who are sick and they can feel the pain.

I care for others especially if he or she is dear to me. I care about them but not more than myself because how i care to others if i cannot care myself first. I always says take care my friend or take care my love. How nice to hear the word "care". This is one of the sweetest word that everybody want to hear coming from the love one. Take care!

You right, this word, for me is very important, sometimes is a big difference between to love and to care; can love just because of infatuation...but can care about somebody else just if you really care; take care you too

well. normally if someone fell in love then he may care about that person more than himself. and the mothers may care more on the children than themselves. and the others may still care themselves more than that. personnally i care my lover more than myself .

I dont children yet so I dont think there is anyone that I know of who I care about more than myself but I do care a lot about my sister and my mother and would probably die for them but I am not sure if I care about them more than myself .You would really have to have a love that wa sa lot like Jesus Christ.I dont consider myself selfish but I guess you would really have to be extremely self sacrificial to be like that .I hope and believe that I can be at that point when I have children

Hi, icesmile. I may say that I really care but I know that I may not risk myself for them. With my kids, I may give my life up for. It is so hard to say for anyone else.

I do tend to care about others more than I care about myself at times. I sometimes push my feelings aside just to make another person happy or feel good. So, I care about others more than I do for myself.

Hi icesmile! I agree that there are people that to all in their mind is to survive with this life. But there are still people that ives this life to give the most blessing to others. Not all people are human are selfish. If you will just open your eyes to real meaning of living in this world and why you still breath until know, you will surely know that life comes with a responsibility to your human kind. Selfishness is made by evil but God did not created as for evil. Always be a blessing to others Gosd speed!

thsi special affection really does happen when the person that you are referring to is flesh of your flesh and blood of your own blood. For instance is your parents, your wife, your kids. I strongly agree and believe that anyone can give their own life for these people that I cited. Of course dear, if its just only your friend I dont think that you can honestly give this kind of affection. Care is associated with love. You dont love the person if you did'nt care for him at all and you dont care for the person you do not love. But above all these persons and even to our own selves, we should love GOD more than anything in this world to enter to HIS kingdom. God Bless and Happy Mylotting!!!

O yes i really care about other person than myself, do not tell we, cause i am not like that. Not all people are selfish and not all people are selfless, besides human beings true purpose in life/this planet is being selfless and help the society become better. You cannot tell whether a person is selfish or not, there are billions of people around the world. Do you think you can judge them that they are selfish? Maybe it is human's culture and practice but i can tell you that not all people are selfish. If i am in front of you i can say to you directly eye to eye, that i am not selfish and i can even show it to you. There are times when i almost sacrifice all that i have for a person. I can sacrifice even my pride just for other people if, they are worthy. I sometimes do a favor for my friends without even asking for return. I feel happy and satisfied seeing other people happy and healthy cause i feel that my purpose as a human being in this earth was being fulfilled. Do you think it is being selfish? I love seeing happy people even if it cost me a lot? Do you think it is selfishness, that i am ready to sacrifice my own life just for others? You may not believe cause you may think that it is easy to say but hard to do, but i can prove it, and i am telling you, it really came from the bottom of my heart. It is my way of thinking since i was a child, and until now, it is not changing, i am born to help others, i am born to make other people happy, and i am born as an individual who knows his purpose in life.

yeah, I care much about my friends who always care about me. I think you must be a man if others give your heart, your must give your heart even all of yourself. So that way the friendship can be so great. I admire friendship very much.

My husband and I care about eachother and ourselves equally. We understand that if we don't take care of ourselves, then we won't be able to take care of eachother, and that if we only try and take care of eachother we will burn out. It's important to spend half of our energy on eachother, and half on ourselves.

If that person is kind with me I woul do the same for them. But for the most part I do care for others sometimes more than I care for myself.

I care about other people, especially to parents and friends. In good and bad times we are still happy to through this live. you are right, sometimes people are selfish and want to win themselves regardless of others but the nature of people are unpredictable.

I agree with you that we love others because we love ourselves. Everyone of us is selfish. If we are not selfish we will cease to existance. Our existance depends on our love of ourselves and others. If we stop loving ourselves, we will not be able to love others. However we cannot forget that love is a very important sentiment and we cannot let our selfishness get the better of us.

Hey very true....Honestly speaking if someone asks me to give my life for the person whom I love the most,i'll definitely think.Human by nature is selfish so I can't help it.But it depends also the conditions.There are some decisions which you can't forecast beforehand.....

Yes, I do care about others more than myself, not, just, because, I am a mum, its my job to care (many do not, of course), its just the way I feel. I know, we are meant to love ourselves, this, feels like a kind of selfish thing to do, like you say, at the same time, some people, believe, we need to be able to love ourselves, before, we can love others, only, I do not go along with this, its, possable, to do so, regardless, how, we feel about ourselves. Many people have, will make great scarfices for another person, to me, this is a true act of life, without a doubt. We do all need support, encouragment, honesty, above, all else, it, is hard surviving, without a struggle, alone, we can do it, still get by. Doing, something, for another person, seeing the joy on their face, is reward enough, we can, be, totally, unselfish, when we choose to be so.
