Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our own lives and problems we fail to pay attention to the needs and wants of those around us. We get almost obsessed with trying to keep our lives in balance we allow our relationships and friendships to be put on the back burner. We must remember we are not the only one alive and that we are not the center of the universe. There are others in this world and in contact with our lives.
We have to take care of business, so to speak but we also got to realize that our actions and decisions don’t only affect us. They effect those around us and can in a domino effect even effect people we will never meet. So we should always consider the feelings and the well being of others around us before making decisions. We should be aware of the consequences of our actions and how it can effect those around us and others not even involved.
It is as simple as giving a homeless man a dollar, He will spend it somewhere and that helps keep another person employed. That homeless man might share his wine or food with another. It could cause that homeless man to do something nice for another and then it continues down the line. It is hard to predict if an action is going to have a cascading effect or just stay localized. But being aware of the possibility may guide us to better choices and actions.
I guess the saying Evil begets evil and good begets good is true if you look at it as a cascading reaction or effect to a good or evil deed. So pay attention to what you say and do, keep in mind the effect you can have on others around you and the possibility of a cascading effect. Choose your words and actions wisely because more and likely they will effect many others and eventually come back to haunt you.
Well enough Psychobabble for today
Peace to you all
