Before you read what I have to say, please take 3 minutes and watch this video. It’s actually the reason for this post.
What’s the point? Why do people do the things they do? Why would you ever act like this? So many questions arise after watching that. Mine would be, why are you so full of hate?
Now let me clarify one thing, I am certainly not perfect. Not even close. I tend to be judgmental, and sometimes a little too hard on people. But I am most definitely working on that, especially after watching that.
The biggest point I’m trying to make from this, is that you (and myself included) should all take an extra second, and extra moment of our lives, and stop. Just give people the benefit of the doubt. Cut em’ some slack. We’ve all had a bad day, where the world seems to have chewed us up, spit us out, and just felt extremely rejected by any form of success that we’ve attempted. The biggest thing you want, the feeling that helps more than anything, is a break. Whenever you can have someone just simply give you a break, can change your entire perspective.
I know, it’s hard. You may be having a bad day. But what does that mean? Two wrongs don’t make a right. Ever. So when someone wrongs you, cut em’ some slack. Don’t get me wrong though, this is certainly not easy. In fact, it’s probably one of the hardest things to do. To put away your preconceived notion of someone is always a tough thing to do. But no good thing comes easy, so work at. I’m going to start trying to. And hey, don’t be afraid to cut yourself some slack. Everyone makes a mistake. Failed exam, overslept a class, skipped a workout, spent too much on something you didn’t need, or even judged someone to quick before even attempting to comprehend their current situation is okay. No one is perfect, and we all make mistakes. But greatness comes from not letting a mistake become a habit.
Sorry about my absence lately, I’m going to my best to get back on here more. Don’t know if more than a handful of people read it, but still, it’s nice to get these things off my head. Work+School=Full Time Busy.
Thanks for reading, and until then.
