I believe that the true nature of human beings is sweet, kind, and generous. Basically I believe people are naturally gracious, but one thing or another happens. It might be jealousy towards others, lack of gratitude, being greedy, being envious, or any other negative emotion that we may have against our surroundings poisons our true nature.
We as humans do not just differ in skin colour, ethnicity, beliefs and mother tongues, we also differ in what we posses what we are given. I most certainly have things that are different than you, what we have differs from what the rest of the world has, it is like a finger print there are no two that are identical. However, what I have does not make me better than anyone else, if I have more money it does not mean I am more special, neither does being more beautiful or having a better education or a better spouse or being more popular or anything else for that matter. I have more of something because I have been blessed, God blesses different people with things that are best for them not because they are the best things.
This is why we have to be kind to one another, we have to support whenever is needed, help whenever we can and compliment as much as we can, as we benefit the most by being humble. Humility raises us. When you compliment someone it does not make them awesome and make you horrible, it makes you sweet and gracious and makes them happy. Believe it or not being humble raises you higher than being snobby and stuck up. Don’t you remember meeting someone you always looked up to and finding them extremely kind and humble? Remember how that made you feel? It made me feel ecstatic, it increased my respect to that person and inspired me to be more like them.
I believe that true graciousness is to be humble, sincere, empathetic, kind and forgiving. Raise people to be raised, love people to be loved, forgive people to be forgiven, what goes around comes around, good or bad no matter how small or big it comes back to you.
