Treat Everyone Fairly & Well

The world comprises of so many different people and characters. I have always found it useful to watch with the curiosity of a child and observe the differences in people without attaching a value to it. Some people are frank, some bold, some stupid, some secretive, some faithful, some suspicious etc.

Initially, I used to get attracted to people with positive and desirable attributes and used to detest the rest. However, time and grey hair have taught me that it takes all kinds to make up the world. In fact, the world would be a very boring place if everyone was alike or everyone was nice. As they say, all five fingers of the hand are different but together they can do so many useful things, I have come to believe that diversity is not only good but also necessary.

Having said that it is but natural that I tend to appreciate differences and would prefer to encourage the same. Also, at the core everyone is the same. Each one has similar set of physical endowments, similar desires and similar dreams. Each one is striving for the same thing and it is better to recognise this and appreciate everyone.

Treating people equally and well also has its advantages - people respond positively to you and the amount of reciprocative behaviour is well worth the effort (if any). So, if you have a cranky neighbour or a nasty acquaintance or a naughty child, go ahead and smile at them and let them know that you accept them as they are. And see the difference !!
