Being Understanding of Others by Leslie A. Fischman
It’s important to always be understanding of others, no matter who they are, where they come from, or what theyre about. –It just so happens that the most well liked people are actually those with the least problems, are seen as the least problematic. I disagree. In fact, its those who have problems, that actually understand them. –Its easy looking from the outside in to identify what problems you think are occurring in an individuals life without even knowing them, that’s called passing judgment. Always give an individual an opportunity to be heard before jumping to any conclusions. –You should always hear someone out, before you make any rationale decisions about their character or choices as to their future outcomes, and destroy their lives. Its important to always be understanding of others, for those reasons. It’s no ones responsibility to correct others, for who they are. That is not the responsibility of others to mold individuals to their liking, or to how they think they should be or how they are supposed to be, that is inhumane. All people should be accepted as they are, within reason. Not one person is important enough to destroy the life of another, not one person is important enough for everything to be about them, and not one person is important enough to have an effect on another’s future or another’s abilities, that’s a pure fallacy of thought, a falsehood or conclusion, as to matters certain.
When you are accepting of others, that shows that you have an understanding of that person’s being. Respect for that person’s existence, and when you do not respect that person, that is when you respond counterproductive to their needs. It is out of respect we choose to include or not include people in our lives. –How we respond to others is a direct reflection of whether or not we care, and why. –In that case … the more that matters to you, the more people will matter to you. The less that matters to you, the less people will matter to you, or fewer people will matter to you. It’s important never to become obsessed with any one person, or group of individuals, but to respect all. Being respectful of all, doesn’t necessarily mean being accepting of all, it just means that we do not interfere with their progress, because we are not threatened by their progress. That is how one behaves towards others, reflects how one feels about others, based upon how those others make them feel, less than, better than, able, or not able to achieve in life. In order to achieve, one must always be respectful, in order to have respect one must have respect for themselves. First and foremost, once you manage that, its easy to accept all.
