Accepting the Flaw
When you meet someone and you notice a flaw would you correct that person or help them unknowingly? When I say help that person unknowingly I mean without making that person feel uncomfortable and do it with kindness instead of being shrewd. Everyone isn’t perfect; if we were perfect we would not be a part of this universe. We tend to want to mold a person into someone else instead of enhancing what that person already posses.
Every person has a certain quality and personality that can use some enhancements. We want to believe that there isn’t anything wrong with us, but often that’s not true. If you meet a person that seems to be the loneliest person in the world it’s because they don’t see the flaw within their self and is not willing to change. Also, no one took the time to help that person make a change. Most often, change is for the best. We also need to realize before we love or interact with others you must first learn to love yourself. Okay; most of us do need an attitude adjustment. I may need some adjustments my self, but at least I know and am willing to admit that it’s needed. What troubles me most is that most of us are not willing to work on you and make a change for the better.
People have the tendencies to walk away instead of working with what they have. We always look for the shiniest item instead of working with the diamond in the ruff. When work is required, we’re most likely to run. Without perseverance this planet would not exist; that is the same analogy we should utilize in everything we do. Its equivalent to planting a seed and watching it grow. A flower or vegetable that you plant from a seed does not grow on its own; it needs food, water, sunlight, love and care.
I believe that it’s a good thing to try to find the good in a person first before looking for the flaws. If you love or like a person you will help them instead of just ridiculing or backbiting about their situation. The tongue is a powerful tool and it cuts like a dull knife. If you’re cut by a sharp knife you will feel it later, but a dull knife hurts tremendously and is long lasting. We need to consider others feelings and treat others as they want to be treated; with kindness and understanding. Be willing to help others that you care for regardless of the flaws. Remember; no one is perfect.
Think about it.
