Is it true that we do things mostly for our benefits?

I have stumbled across someone saying that "As human beings, everything we do is because of our own benefits. Even when we choose to help someone, we do it because the kind act brings us happiness."

To some extent it is true. What do you think about this point of view?

  • Aug 19 2013: Very true. I enjoy helping others and it makes me feel good. But there comes a time in life when you relize that you need to slow down and think more about you.If you don't care for yourself no one else will.
