Do you think everyone is doing the best they can?

Hello everyone!!

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!

  1. I totally agree Iti, especially these lines:
    “…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”
    You couldn’t have said it any better.
    Wonderful post dear πŸ™‚

  3. I think you’re right. Everyone does the best they can in the circumstances they’re in. I also think that some people just do what’s best for them. Not always deliberately, but because that’s the only way they know how to behave. Some people chose only to look out for no.1. Some people always put others needs before their own, this in itself creates resentment. I think, as humans, we all do the best we can but what is best in our eyes is not always best in someone else’s. It’s all about perception. I totally agree that being kind, always doing the best you can and accepting that, no matter what, we’re all just trying to do the best we can is the key. The difference is some come from a place of kindness and love while other come from a place of ego and selfishness. I think I’m going to check this book out for myself, thank you 😊 xx

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts!! True, one person’s best may just not be enough for another… some people wear the lens of kindness– for others its more about their world… Thanks… spiralled more thoughts…

    wow! Thought provoking article.I totally agree with you Iti.I believe being born as humans makes us extra ordinary.We all have our own individual complex set of emotions.Our own defense mechanisms to cope with day to day trials and tribulations.We all have good days and bad days.Good days we let go of certain big problems and bad days we cling to smallest problems.And we have expectations from every individual we come across in our daily lives which triggers different emotions.Every Individual will have a good side and a bad side,we should embrace both the sides.The book sales will increase,thanks to your article πŸ˜‰
