Asalam alaekum,
Please i would like to know if there’s any reward for selflessness and sacrifice in this world? I believe being selfless has many rewards in the hereafter, but in this life it only brings pain,depression and agony.
How do I balance the love for myself and the love for others. I find it difficult to love myself, or do good for myself. Always struggling to make others happy, and better in every way i can. But I only get hurt. I love Allah and fear the day i would stand before Him…but this depressed feelings i fear will come as a wuja against me.
Please help me! I have been listening to lectures but after sometime i go  through this again. 
Jazakum llah khaeran
