Should good people have to be selfless?

Should good people have to be selfless?

NO! Not always!

Being selfless means giving people the opportunity to take advantage of you. Be good and do good, but also set boundaries when it comes to helping others who are capable. It doesn't always have to involve money; it could be assisting with a specific task, providing useful information, or encouraging them to help others in different ways.
