Balance is Golden

Updated on July 31, 2010

In the face of may find peace.

To thine self be fair

For we are our own temple and vessel of the knowledge and emotions we hold to oversee our days .......this is a grande gift from God. What we do and feel can and will impact others. With that in mind we must remember it goes both ways and that others do make a vast difference in how we feel and the actions we take. Balance is key here.

Fairness to others is important as it is also critical for ourselves.To be honest with both ourselves and others is a great start with balance of the mind. To accept, respect, and expect what is fair. This sounds so simple.....but it appears not to be the case.

So many people tend to be so hard on their family and friends.......making note of all mistakes and trying to control anothers life. Within that path they leave hurt feelings and the person with a lowered self confidence level. Finally when that family member or friend finally realize they must regain control of their own destiny for the mere saving themselves from the hurt and mental harrassment..... they find the guilty party .....has more problems than was ever revealed before...and it is about time for them to focus on the life they could not repair due to focusing on anothers.

Over the past 30 years I have seen this in my own small family as well in quite a few others..Some just can not be content to drive their own boat.....they want to sink the ones around them. Maybe theirs just isn't the most adored...or as fast. or ..oh get the picture.

Stress is very bad for ones health....most know this by now. To willfully hurt someone on a regular basis still baffles me. However when one learns to hold their head high and accept their own flaws and limitations and to learn from past faux pas......that in itself will cut down on harsh judgement of others and maintain a more healthy self image and self confidence.

A desire to control others is a symptom of lack of control and to intentionally hurt someone else by showing anothers flaws is an attempt to not see their own and to deflect attention from them.

Many great sayings come straight from this subject matter! For it is a human characteristic to "kick someone when they are down". To be human is to be we must concentrate on our by one.... be the best we can be..........give what we can safely and to love ourselves despite being human ..and to care for others as God has cared for us.........with compassion.

I completely understand that I am perfectly flawed and simply complex and the ones I love are a mixture of the same.....I wouldn't have it any other way!

      Very thought provoking hub. It reminds me of a scripture that say: take the beam out of our own eye before trying to remove a speck out of your neighbors.

      I've always thought that when people tease or make fun of you they only do it to make themselves feel better, Honestly I know I have done that as well it is sad to say but true none the less. nI do not remember the situation but I know I did. But things have changed since grade school (Thankfully).

      We are who we are, and tolerance for others is essential for success and happiness. I worked for a man who held everyone but himself to standards so rigid no one could live up to them. He was a millionaire, of course, but he seemed to believe everything was about him, which is never the case. Everyone needs to try harder to give both themselves and everyone else a break once in awhile.
