We tend to make ourselves the exception to the rule. We justify our reasoning and logic and believe ourselves to be right although we know in a corner of our minds that we’re not. We argue that when we’re speeding, it’s because everyone else is going too slow and we have somewhere we just have to be. We don’t realize that although our actions might not hurt anyone at the moment, in a second, it can cause a chain reaction and hurt others, and even ourselves, instantly. We tend to live with only ourselves in mind. We forget that our lives are a part of a web of lives and we are always interconnected. We influence, affect, and connect with one another on a daily basis. From the stranger we share our morning commute to, to the friends we check up on and the barista that knows just how we like our coffee– we are constantly in state of motion. Meeting people and leaving others behind. This cycle only ends once– when we’re dead. It has been repeatedly said, that our actions speak louder than our words, but we forget this when we move and act with only ourselves in mind. We all have duty to one another, the same exact way, we have a duty to ourselves. Our world is ours and it will only ever be what we make it. It’s not perfect and it probably will never be but that doesn’t mean it can’t be better. If your every act were universal law, would you be happy? Live in such a way, that your answer is a confident, yes!
