    Can you really do a selfless act?

    So do you guys think a person can do a selfless act? Like don't make crap up, actually give me a case where this happened.

    He was your friend, so basically you didn't do a selfless act.

    Is a selfless act possible? Definitely.

    Volunteering to distribute food to the homeless where you don't know anyone and aren't publicized is an example of a selfless act. A selfless act is an act where you help but expect no reward in return. Donating to charities is often seen as a selfless act and it is in most cases, but sometimes the motive behind donating is recognition for your donation. In example a celebrity donating to a cause and has the media cover his donation. Now it's no longer a selfless act, the celebrity wants fame for his donation.

    Telling you and boasting about any actual selfless acts would defeat the purpose would it not

    Actually, he's not. I've talked to him maybe 4 times.

    Since you felt good about helping do the "Selflessnes" so technically it was not a selfless act.

    I might have been wrong about him being your friend, but I know you felt good about helping him.

    I don't think you know what a selfless act is. Feeling good after giving directions to someone doesn't make you selfish. Can you control how you feel about doing about doing something? No. But you can control your motives behind an act. In that regard, your motives behind an act make it selfless, not how you feel about it.

    Well that's my definition of selflessness, screw people who this otherwise.

    It didn't tbh. I just know I'd feel really bad if I didn't. Even if I did supposedly feel good, no one does anything for absolutely no purpose, there's no point. It's like saying you shouldn't do it because it gives you purpose, like a volunteer fireman rushing in putting his life at risk to save a baby or something. Dumb af.

    Dix? English also dumb af cock boy. Thx.
