More and more in this world, society is rapidly becoming self serving, self promoting, self glorifying and of course, self centered. It’s dog eats dog and get what you can, forget everyone else..do you and do it for you.
The problem with this is, we are teaching our children to do this and the problem with that is that we somewhere, along the way, are programming these children to care less, love less and focus on the wrong things.
We are failing as parents, as families, as communities and most of all setting up humanity at large to fail.
With all the evil and corruption in the world, if we don’t get a reign on these upcoming generations, that will indeed, become “the world”, where is the future of humanity?
We need to reexamine our priorities and what really matters in life. We need to stop being so caught up in worldly things that we forget about the real treasures in this life.
Why is it easier for us to judge and criticize than to embrace and compliment.
Why is it easier for us to ignore someone in need than to step up and help them.
What does it cost, just to show a stranger kindness and even more-so, your own neighbor.
We need to break this cycle and save ourselves from ourselves.
We are all in this together, it’s time to start acting like it.
“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
― Mother Teresa
