These are some of my insights on how to be a good person- simple principals and you can take them or leave them. I invite you to take these straightforward reminders with you on your journey in life.
3 Point Reminders:
Want the Best for Others
Want things for people that you want for yourself. There is no “piece of the pie” given to somebody that has been taken away from somebody else. If someone gets what they want it doesn’t make the chances of you getting what you want any lower. This world is expansive and limitless. Also, for all you sickos out there, someone’s suffering should never make you feel better about yourself.
Regardless as to the circumstances and outcome of any situation, try and find appreciation for it- any enjoyment you can take from it, what you learned and how you grew. Think about what you do have and focus on it rather than thinking of what is missing. If you are moving forward from a relationship then take the time to appreciate that connection for what it was and honor it.
I didn’t say settle for less than you want or need, or take anyone’s BS, but just know that everyone has their own points of views, paradigms, the way they understand, experience, and interpret their own life. It is okay if it is not the same as yours. Have an understanding of other peoples point of view, although it might be different than yours, it comes from their own experiences that have shaped them into who they are today- just like you.
Just apply those 3 points and voila! You are instantly a good person!
Now I am not saying that those three points are going to be always easy to apply, especially given certain situations. I am simply providing you some tools to work on shifting your perspective to increase your overall quality of life.
Do you have anything you would like to add? Anybody have experiences with these points?
