I too, try to be a decent human.
How do I do it?
In many ways I guess. I think about how the other person is feeling. I try to put myself in their shoes, so that I can at least try to understand.
I am kind, and try to give of myself...which sometimes I do too much.
I like to make people happy, so I do little things for them to make them smile. Even if it is just a flower from my garden to one of my neighbors. She is 101, and doesn't get out much, and I know she likes flowers.
I help out in the community, and volunteer for many children's activities. After all, children are our future, and need to learn decency from others.
People who are decent, are good listeners when you need an ear. They love you no matter what your faults...and take you at your best or worst.
Everyone is not messed up. It is just their priorities and morals that are messed up. If they could see what they are doing, not only to themselves, but others, I think they would have a change of heart.
