Selflessness (unselfishness) is defined as being concerned more with the needs and wishes of others than with one's own. Moreover, it can be defined as having or showing great concern for other people and little or no concern at all for yourself or oneself. Whereas, selfishness is directly opposite of that (selflessness). Now, are you selfless or are you selfish? Anyway, you should be selfless rather than selfish. Because, true love or true leadership is all about being selfless. Contrariwise, untrue love or untrue leadership has to do with selfishness. Besides, whoever that is selfless is true to form (or type) i.e. he or she is being or behaving as expected. But, anyone who is selfish is factitious (not genuine). Nevertheless, do quote me right or better still you can say I said so. ~Emeasoba George
