Only Goodness

If there were only one person in the world to be completely honest with, aim for it to be yourself. Our urge to observe and tell another of their faults is often for our own perceived benefit and ego and certainly not theirs.

To be perpetually honest with yourself requires a courage that very few will ever have. To accept who we really are and comprehend how we behave in relation to others presents the opportunity for us to continue learning. We will only change for the better by knowing where we started from and are purposely aiming toward as we think and act in the present to improve and to contribute more.

To ignore our own faults while pointing out another’s produces little to no value for either. Just take a realistic look inwardly. Enjoy the goodness and the efforts of another without judgement. Be honest to change yourself so that you may learn and grow even beyond your potential. To find only goodness in others is a conscientious effort that only you can control.

“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, ‘soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.’ I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch it with awe as it unfolds.” — Carl Rogers —
