Are you a good person? What does being a good person mean to you? Why do you want to be a good person? These are just a few questions brought up during this discussion between Melektoth and Elinara. Join our hosts as they peel back layers upon layers of psychological conditioning and society’s selfish nature. Melektoth shares some interesting examples of selfish behaviour hidden beneath the surface of kind gestures, and Elinara shares her perspectives on sacrifice and happiness. This episode will shift the way you think about being a good and selfless human being. It won’t change who you are, but how you see yourself. This is the next step in your Dark Ascent.
