Fandango asks: Is it more important to you to be able to help yourself, help your family, help your friends, help your society, or help the world?

This is a really tough one to answer.

Not because I don’t know the answer, but because it requires both absolute honesty and deep self-awareness.

I think the answer is myself.

Not because I always put myself first, but because I think that even when I have prioritised others, it was to satisfy myself. My need to be a good mother, a good daughter, a good friend, etc. It is important to me that I feel like I have done my responsibility towards all those roles. Yes, that I will confess. Most often it is responsibility that directs my actions, then love.  

There is a hierarchy of course – family and friends (who amongst them depends on the situation), the world and then society.

I still have hope for the world. Society I am pretty disillusioned by, and have almost given up on. Society as it is today will end the world. By that logic its more important to fix society. But I don’t know how to help or fix society. I at least understand a few ways to help the world.
