So you think you’re better than me?

It can be great to have a best friend. Someone who is like your other half, and someone you can really identify with, but i think it can be dangerous to identify too much with your friends. I know, that for some people it can get to a level where you see everything as a competition between yourself and your friends.
When I describe it like this, it really sound like I say that this wouldn’t be a pretty good friendship, but sometimes I see myself like this kind of person too, I have to admit that. It’s not very satisfying always being compared to others, to be the second best and to be the second choice. Never the less, people will always compare you to others, and mostly it will be the people close to you, which isn’t good, but it’s also impossible to avoid. There wouldn’t be any good without bad, so you can’t really blame anyone for this. You can just be yourself and hope for acceptance. Namaste.

Most happiness to as many as possible

We discussed this in my philosophy class the other day. Would the best thing be, if as many people as possible were as happy as they could get? Even if some people would get hurt in the process?
For example, what if you killed someone against the persons will, and gave all the persons organs to some who really needed them? The person whose organs you took propably wouldn’t be happy about it, but it would make a lot more people happy. Would it be worth it to take the happiness from one person if you could give happiness to maybe 10 more?
Of course you would never do this, but i find the idea very interresting. What do you think?

Everything isn’t just black and white

We use so much time, thanking the people who does something good to us, which is great! But why don’t we ever thank the people who has treated us badly? What i mean is…haven’t they affected us just as much as our good friends? They have helped ud just as much as anyone else, becoming who we are today. Imagine what the world would look like if this was a reality, i can’t really figure out if it would be positive or negative. It is so hard to change your mind on people who already made a bad impression on you, but i am just trying to be positive.
