What kind of world would it be if we all watched out for each other’s well-being!
I started thinking about this because of the increase of people looking to demean others. Why is it that anyone needs to put anybody else down? I came up with two reasons. First, people that are angry are just looking for a place to express that anger. The second reason, and I think the main one, is that abusive people often don’t feel good about themselves. They feel inferior and are negative toward others trying to convince themselves that they are better than the person they are putting down.
One thing I’ve learned over the years is that just because someone is ‘successful’ doesn’t mean that they are happy. When one does not feel their own strength they will belittle others to pretend they are better. Real strength is when you feel equal with everyone and you encourage others, and are okay with their success.
We’ve all gossiped and have said negative things about people because we want to feel better about ourselves. No one is exempt from having done that. If we can own up to having done so, it will be easier to deal with making the changes that need to happen.
Now that this negative attitude is out of the shadows it’s time to create a new strategy to help resolve this issue. If enough people understand the underlying cause of negativity, steps will naturally be taken to make changes.
This is a movement that everyone can be involved with, even the younger generation. Here are some ideas that can be used if you see something abusive going on:
Here is a thought to meditate on:
Now that we are watching out for each other’s wellbeing, isn’t this world an incredible place to live!
