Every once in a while I have to stop and ask myself, who has failed us?
Because I can’t seem to understand how people operate in a certain manner towards others, in light that their actions are acceptable or okay.
Who failed us?
The government, our parents, the education system, or ourselves as a whole? Who?
I mean, tell me…
Is keeping your word and responding to deadlines no longer important?
Is decorum, professionalism and presentation not a factor?
Does having the basic level of respect for others and their time irrelevant?
Who didn’t teach us or provide us with the tools of responsibility and personal accountability?
Who teaches us to build character and therefore be accountable of the one we adopt?
Maybe it has to do with the quality of an area and/or environment, but still, it doesn’t make sense to me.
The Big 3: Do what’s right. Do your best. Treat others the way you want to be treated.
–Sunrise Elementary School (My elementary school)
As things elevate for me, I ask the powers above everyday to assist me in managing people better.
Because the last thing Sarah Lee is going to do is dismantle the production of her empire to respond to those who failed themselves (there’s my answer) with the basic characteristics needed to be a decent human being.
I’ll opt in to teach before I get upset and respond in a manner that’s not of my character.
We gotta do better.
After a certain point, it is YOUR responsibility to provide yourself with the things you weren’t provided with as a child.
Always, always keep your word. If you dropped the ball, make things right by correcting what you’ve damaged.
You owe yourself and others that much.
Who failed us?
Sharing some thoughts.
This growth process gets interesting as you personally evolve. At 26, I’ve learned, re-learned, and learned some more about things that people twice my age hasn’t learned yet. It’s so hard to see people not care about their personal development, because I find it to be a HUGE necessary to general life success. Or, just being a good person.
Today was a realization that we have some work to do, collectively. We are all in this together. Assist where you can.
