I recently read “Rising Strong by Brene Brown.” It is a thought riveting book. And, she raised this question to everyone “Do you think everyone is doing the best they can?” This got me thinking, a lot! My first reaction was “No ways… a very few people are giving their best, most of the people on their worst behaviour. Look around, you’ll see too many people fighting, pulling down each other, neglecting their loved ones and being a bad version of themselves. It’s just too much stress and pressure.”
Since then, I’ve been trying to see the world through other people’s perspective. And, I ve been introspecting my own behaviour. So finally, I think that people are doing their best, as per their circumstances, experiences and resources. It’s just that some people have been scarred too often and they’ve either built walls around them or they are always ready with ammunition. But, we need to know that everyone has their own battles to fight, which sometimes results in collateral damage. Just like a vicious circle, there is a virtuous circle; Be kind to everyone you meet, give your best at any point of time and the seeds of kindness will blossom into a happy place for all of us!
But, I would love to know your thoughts…Do share them!
