I have been observing and reflecting on the going-ons in the office.
I realised how we, humans, just love to judge others based on our own beliefs and values. Most of this judging are mostly negative and like a virus can spread its malice unto others as well.
I also noted that how much we belief in a person’s words has a lot to do with our own agenda (needs). Even if the other party is wrong, but because “we are friends”, we would naturally be more tolerant and even closed one-eye to any wrongs that particular “friend” did or say.
So how “good” a friend are we if we were to persist in doing so?
I hope through my observation and reflection, I will be more aware of my own actions and words. Everyone of us are responsible for our own actions and words and thus, should not blame unto others.
I am becoming more “friendless” because now I have a tendency to speak in a direct manner and have no patience for wishy-washy and even less for hypocrisy … even in myself.
Yet I find peace in doing so …. friends or not, I am a loner by nature, and have always been comfortable in my own company.
Less said the better when we are in crowds or chat rooms …. I have to try harder in this aspect 😦
Say only what we mean and say words that bring goodness to ourselves and others….
Avoid people that affect us negatively … intentions must not be because we think we are good or proud of ourselves but because we want to safeguard our thoughts and emotions.
Safety first … in words, thoughts and deeds …
