I think this is what makes humans so insufferable, we sometimes lack the ability to see how truly insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things. When compared to the universe our lives are just a speck of dust, but here we are thinking that universe revolves around us and our needs.
I feel I can say this because I’ve worked in customer service my entire life and have seen the worst of worst human beings in action. But a lot of humans are selfish, prideful, entitled, annoyingly insecure, and just downright pain in the necks. But I love y’all still (most of the time) because I’m not perfect and have been and sometimes still am all of the things I’ve listed.
It’s very easy to get wrapped up in this #selfie nation that we live in. But right now promise yourself that you will take more time to step out of “me” and into the world around you.
- Take A Walk
When’s the last time you just stepped back just to marvel at how awesome this world is. I know there’s a lot of ugly things happening in the world right now but that’s even more reason to get out there at see it. Look up at the blue sky and the massiveness of it, appreciate it. Who knows what it will look like in 10 years.
- Actually Care
No one really cares about anyone anymore. I realize that a little bit more every time I get on the road and no one will let me change lanes. So next time if you see someone with their blinker on don’t just pass them be a nice person and let them over. Also the next time you ask someone how they are, actually mean it. I hate that that’s become this empty greeting.
- Think Of Someone Else
I can’t stress this one enough. Have you ever entered a public bathroom and it was completely trashed? That’s because someone didn’t have the courtesy to clean up after themselves. I know this is surface level but this kind of thing bleeds over into more serious parts of life. You messy bathroom people, do you ever stop to think about the poor soul who has to clean that restroom? No…you didn’t, next time please do. You may never get a “thank you” but trust me your helping someone.
