The Power of Our Actions

The Power of Our Actions

We remain so unaware of the power of our words, and utter them without giving them and ounce of thought, little it is that we realise our actions, words and stupid jokes impact people and influences their beliefs about their own esteem and integrity.

Imagine somebody out there genuinely believes he's a loser just because of you, because of a joke, a meme, a comment you made just to look cool or funny in-front of your followers, but not everyone's born with a thick skin; not everyone can withstand the harsh criticism.

Some are more vulnerable than others and become easily overwhelmed and disappointed in themselves. Your words could be a reason for someone's heart to shatter; for someone to cry all night long. It can damage and traumatise someone beyond where language can reach, and could scar someone for the rest of their lives. We refuse to even countenance the idea that some just have to struggle much more to reach minimum expectations.

We all are, we're all trying to figure out life, but instead of pouncing on someone's flawed understanding for a mere giggle, try to make them aware about their flawed understanding not by mocking them but with empathy, favor privacy and advise them, a little introspection into someone's behaviour can reveal how they're just staggering along to decide things on a basis of no knowledge.

Did you know everything that you know now all the way along? Knowledge isn't something we are inherently born with; we all learn by trial and error. And while we're all in this trial of life, let's rectify the errors of one another with love and empathy, the empathy we speak endlessly of but refuse to act upon when it's required. This single alteration in out intention, let alone our behaviour, could possibly improve a lot of things around us.

Don't be a reason for someone's misery or sorrow. Don't let the belief of superiority of the knowledge or facts that you've gathered be stamped all over your existence. Instead, put your knowledge and insight at the service of others and help each other grow.
