How to Make this Planet Human-Friendly
Hatred, selfishness, and envy are the commonly found traits in our species. All these contribute to hard-to-survive surroundings and we need to induce some positive traits that how something more humane that can make this world a better place to live in.
We, humans, do like change but when it comes to changing ourselves for the betterment of society or for the greater good, we tend to resist. I wonder why we are so self-centric. Why everyone focuses more on criticizing others instead of improving themselves? How come pointing fingers to others is the easiest thing to do? Wouldn’t it be great if we work on ourselves and make collective efforts to make our world a better one?
So, where do we start?
Here are a few imperative things that if every individual possesses can definitely bring a positive change and help in developing a human-friendly atmosphere.
Upgrade Tolerance Level
A basic level of tolerance is necessary for every individual. The capability of handling unfavorable circumstances by keeping yourself calm is hard to attain virtue. Once you learn self-control and manage to tolerate what’s undesirable, you have taken a step towards personal well-being and a positive societal change.
How tolerance can help you?
Are you short-tempered? Gets angry over little things? Well, you need to work on yourself! By keeping control of your anger, you will be able to see things clearly. Not only it will improve your personal life, but your interaction with others will also be a more pleasant experience. Those of your friends and family who hesitated to talk to you openly because of your short temper will love this change in you.
If we all enhance our tolerance level, there will be more peace and less chaos in the society.
Agree to Disagree
A difference of opinion is among the most common causes of disputes in every society. We are so egomaniac and self-centered that we can’t think of listening to someone whose opinions are different than ours. Don’t you think we need to pay attention to this critically important factor?
Disagreement often leads to heated debates and we end up disgracing each other. Come on people, we are all humans, and humans make mistakes. We can be wrong and others can be right too!
Instead of insulting those who don’t get your point of view, it’s better to try and understand their side of the story. Even if you don’t agree with what they say, just listen and make yourself understand that it’s okay to have a difference of opinion. Not everyone can think alike. Everyone has their own ideas and we are supposed to at least respect, if not accept what they say.
If we all learn to agree on disagreement, it will definitely have a positive impact and we will be able to respect each other more, which will contribute to make our world a worth-living place.
Let Go of Negativity
Negativity and hatred growing in our hearts eats us up from the inside and make us the worst versions of our selves. Do you really think this world needs our contribution of negative energy? Don’t you think we should try our best to play a positive, impactful, and effective role in improving our surroundings?
So how do we do that? I think we can simply start with letting go! Let go of the long-kept hatred and envy. Free yourself from the trouble that negativity brings with itself. How about forgiving those who have wronged you? Sounds nearly impossible, right?
Still, if you want to put your mind at ease and help make this world a better and worth-living place, what can be better than forgiving and moving on?
Forgive people, let go of hatred and you will feel as light as a feather. With peace of mind and a light heart, you will be able to make better decisions for your life and the world will be a happier and pleasant place.
So, are you ready to bring a positive change? What else do you think we need to work on?
