Seek To Change

Some of us are always not happy with our life. We feel that we deserve better and we want others to appreciate us more. Yet we are not willing to work hard to improve and upgrade ourselves.

Some people are always not happy with their living conditions. Somehow others are living a happier, healthier, and wealthier life and they are unhappy about it. They watch from afar until jealousy and resentment dwell in the heart. And they start to smear and tarnish the good name of their neighbors. They make false accusations and incorrect statements about them. And they grumble and curse, and sneer and jeer at them. Yet they do nothing to alter their lives, or change and improve their present circumstances and livelihoods.

Some people are never satisfied with their present job and career. They are envious of others who are having a more successful, lucrative and satisfying career. Hatred and anger overwhelm them. And they attempt to slander and impugn the good reputation of their colleagues and bosses. They make false allegations and malicious rumors about them. They grumble and curse, and do harm and hurt them badly. But they do nothing to upgrade, improve or reorient themselves to face challenges and setbacks in the journey ahead, and to path the way to success.

Some people always face difficulties in their relationship with others. Somehow others are making truer and stauncher friends and they are jealous about it. Uneasiness and disgust sink in their heart. And they seek to split and destroy the good relationships and fellowships. They make false reports and fabricate stories about them. They grumble and curse, and defame and slander them. Yet they do nothing to restore and maintain their relationships with other people, and foster closer and stronger friendships.

How nice and sweet the world can be if we all seek to change ourselvesfor the better.

the beauty of our life start within our self, and become a model to others.

Well said. We each have all we need but the change starts with us and not worrying about what others have.

I always reminds myself of this quotation by Gandhi, "Be the change you want to see in the World."
