In general as human beings we are normally kind to people who are kind to us.
However when someone is not behaving well towards us, we tend to change our attitude, response and behaviour toward that person. I know I am guilty of this and I am sure many of you reading this are too. It is a natural human trait.
We wait for the other person to change before changing ourselves. Hence we then do not find change in others nor in ourselves.
If we can look for and see others’ inner qualities, you will find you can connect to them more easily. By doing this you will not be dependent on another person’s behaviour for your own. It will help you to see each person’s positive aspects and take them within yourself. In this way you will become richer with each interaction. You will feel better about yourself and about the world. It is not always easy to do, but it works.
Now more than ever, we need to aim to make these changes within us, so that the world in turn will start to become a kinder place.
