“Don’t think or judge, just listen.”
The aforementioned set of words, by Sarah Dessen, kindled me to write and express my philosophies about the human nature, something about our psyches, something regarding behaviours, thoughts, actions and reaction, appreciation and mockery, something on emotions, expressions and constraints.
It all starts with one’s environment, the situation in which he grows and the way he is nurtured. Everybody is born the same, this is my very personal belief. I have always felt that there are two options to everyone in every situation. The one who is oppressed can either become the most humane or the most brutish being, the one who has been much opulent either turns into a profligate or somebody so scrooge, totally tightwad. It all depends on how has he been treated during his journey.
The other day I went through some random words that went like ‘If you like something about somebody, appreciate it. Because that may take a while for you but for somebody its impact could be eternal.’. We don’t realize how important or, better say, significant is our influence on the people who we are in contact with no matter in what manner. Whatever we say is going to affect them howsoever.
I usually think how must I shape or groom myself, so that when I get to raise some little humans whom I will be blessed as an official responsibility to influence on in the best possible manner. For that, I believe, I need to teach myself first and start practicing by implementing and treating others in the best possible manner so as to influence their lives in a better way, to make someones life better, to have a very positive impact on somebody in this otherwise negative society. And for that, in turn, I need to understand the psyche, the needs and requirements of one’s mind and that’s what I try to do and wish to excel in. Because I personally believe that this can not only make others lives better, it also brings self-satisfaction and contentment within self. And since ‘Charity begins at home’ and also the people who we get to interact the most with are our parents, siblings and our kids, our fellows etc, so now we know where we should start practicing this from.
Because no matter what we are going to influence their lives in some way however so why not try to understand people and leave a better impression? Why not make everybody feel good about himself? Why not try to make this world a better place? Why not spread love when you can. Let’s enjoy the bumpy ride of life together. I hope this attempt makes a difference. Be and let others be at peace. Fingers crossed!
