All of us meet different kinds of people in our lives.Some are selfless, some are helpful, some are loyal and some are kind. Not to say that good people don’t exist, but what I have been noticing is that people are becoming more and more ungrateful and selfish day by day.
Personally speaking, I’ve had friends who have had my back during difficulties but I have had more friends who are self-centered. Recently, a friend of mine called me after a long time and just within a minute of talk, he asked me for a huge favour which was beyond my capacity to fulfil.
On the contrary, people one can talk to about anything without fearing about anything are the kind of people I love. They are loyal and don’t hurt people’s feelings. Recent experiences have shown me you can’t trust people blindly. Whatever you do for them, most people won’t even care. I believe people should stick up to their word. Nobody likes hypocrites.
I believe we humans can develop a hate for a person we love within a matter of seconds(maybe rightly so) and don’t even give the other person the chance to explain themselves.
Can people change? I believe they sure can. But if someone believes they can’t change for the better, they won’t be able to see the change that they might be going through at that exact moment. If people can change and become thieves and drug addicts, why can’t people change for the better? Although, I think that there is something, say unconditional love or hatred, that makes people better or worse.
According to me, another habit that people have that they jump to conclusions really quickly. To quote an incident, a classmate of mine considered me to be not a good person and apparently developed a “hate” for me without even knowing who I was. The person has never even talked to me properly. Developing such perceptions for people without even knowing them is outrightly judgemental.
People don’t understand that what they speak might hurt others. They speak whatever is on their minds to complete strangers without realising the effect it might have on the other person…
We humans don’t need better technology or materialistic things to make this world a better place. We need compassion, love, gratefulness and selflessness to achieve the goal of universal happiness.
