I am a human by birth,
But being human is my choice,
In simpleness, gentleness, in honour and in mirth,
Clean in manners and clean in voice…
I have always considered myself a fairly good human being. At the risk of sounding pompous, I think I am emphatic, caring, warmhearted, affectionate and a very God fearing person. I try to make small donations for some noble cause and am very thankful to God for the blessings he has bestowed upon me.
But am I really a good human being?
I maybe caring but have I put myself in any uncomfortable position to help someone who isn’t related to me?
I am good tempered and joyful but do I always handle myself gracefully when someone drives me up the wall. Dont I then disrespect people irrespective of their age or the relationship I have with them? . Dont I then remove my frustrations on some innocent soul (usually the kids😔) to vent out my helplessness to show my wrath to the concerned person.?
I am a decent person but can I confidently say I have never given in to my temptations or acted against my better judgement?
I may forgive most times but never forget. So can I claim with confidence that I do not hold grudges for things forgiven but not forgotten?
I am not a jealous type but have sometimes envied people for things they have and I lack .Doesnt that make me greedy?
Though dishonesty isn’t really my policy but I have to admit I have lied many times not only to save my skin but sometimes just to avoid petty arguments.
I have a fine sense of humour but am guilty of hurting a few sentiments in the effort to sound funny😔.
I admit I am flawed maybe mostly stitched with good intentions but I have to admit there are wicked traits inside me that surface up more often than I’d like them to. But I rather accept my mistakes than fake perfection..
But are good human beings always perfect without any shortcomings?
Can I be a good human being with my flaws trying to survive in this world making a few compromises along the way to make my life comfortable and happy???
