True Nobility

True nobility

It is so easy to look at someone else’s life and criticize them. Why don’t they have money? Why are they constantly complaining? What is wrong with them? If we have been lucky enough to have our health. Fortunate enough to make enough money so we don’t have to stay up all night wondering if we will have a home tomorrow or if our children will eat. Haven’t had to deal with bombs going off around us, losing our family to war. Not been plagued with one disaster after the other. Then I think we should have compassion for those that are less fortunate.

Sometimes people complain a lot. Be grateful they trust you with their pain, their misfortunes. Perhaps if these things make any sense at all they are there to show us how very lucky we are.

Those of us who have been fortunate have no reason for arrogance. It is pure luck. Yes, we may have worked hard for all we have but we had the health, stamina and education that made that possible.

Be kind and never, ever think you are superior to anyone unless it is the younger you because you have learned compassion and empathy for others.

Have you money? Why? Were you left an inheritance? Maybe you had the money for a good education that allowed you to work at what you loved for a decent salary? Have good health? You live in a society that has good food at reasonable cost. Medicine is available as is medical care.

Not everyone is so fortunate. All of us are just one disaster or health crisis from being those we might criticise

Through no fault of their own they may have been born in a society that didn’t value them. Had a disease that made it difficult or impossible to work. Had circumstances leading to addiction.

Look to yourself are you really that much better than your fellow human or just more fortunate??
