Are you a good human being?

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???

Can I be a Jekyll and Hyde or does the brief condescension to evil destroys the balance of my soul???

So how good a human are u?

You all have a great day ahead!!!!

      1. The most important thing is to be ok with your own conscience. What people think or say doesn’t change who you are. The strength comes from knowing ourselves.

      4. It seems to me that you come from a family of morally upright individuals. How then do you interact with people who lack the decency that you have been raised to uphold?

      5. Being brought up well does not mean avoiding indecent people,its about upholding ur values amongst them too..😊

      6. Being cognizant of the indecency of others and being able to uphold your values at every turn requires a profound sense of humanity. I respect that – it is something I rarely ever see and I appreciate the people who embody it.

      8. Surely, the interactions that you have with people must continue to redefine and challenge the way you were raised, no?

    2. Indeed. I do believe that the concept of being a human being revolves around the imperfections that characterize who we are. Being flawless is not what makes someone human, neither is it what makes them special.

      1. So right. Being human, how we overcome our baser instincts and be better is what the whole thing is about.

  2. Perfection is an unattainable illusion for the human condition. We can always strive to be our best selves, but we must accept we may never meet the mark we set for perfection. It is really not about achieving perfection, it is about a steady path leading us to be better people each day. A never ending struggle to be more than we were the day before. That is all anyway can hope for. Lovely piece wrenched with emotion and thought!

  4. No one is perfect. There are some bad things we all do intentionally or unintentionally. The thing that all matters are whether we admit our mistakes or not, whether we are willing to correct them or not.
