I suppose this weeks spread takes on a chapter book design approach -just trying to jazz it up a bit.
The article, as stated in the article itself, is about a topic thats been rolling around in my mind for a while. Not sure if I was able to fully express myself or get my point across, but I hope at least it gets people thinking along the lines of how we treat each other and how socialising is sort of decreasing/decaying from its true purpose.
Hope you enjoy it and I wish you all a wonderful easter break!
Keep smiling and see you all here next week :]
(If you’re new to the blog, “Image Text” is simply my way of catering to all readers. I assume some of your aren’t really into the design side of things and simply want a good read. So that is why I’ve inserted the text separately.)
The thought of people doing certain things for others simply for the sake of personal gain, has been rolling around in my mind for the past month. I feel like nowadays most people act as if it’s every man for himself, as in they could careless about anyone else and it’s a race to be the greater species.
The saying, “never step on anyone’s toes on the way up because you don’t want to have to deal with them on the way down” replays in my mind every time. I suppose this way of thinking works for many and spreads harmony amongst the community, but to me it’s not the best way to look or approach life.
I’m not perfect and I know no one is, but every time I do something, I think to myself, “how would that person feel?” I’m rarely thinking about just my feelings, wants, or desires, I’m also compensating for others. Sounds terrible, but when you think about it, it’s simply kindness. I think others feel, if they go out of their way to be nice to another, whom they really dislike, simply because they need something from them, is a kind act in itself. It is kind, but at the same time quite selfish and arrogant.
You don’t need to use people to get the things you want. People are wiling to lend a helping hand to any kind or generous person they come across. I do believe heavily in karma and feel every kind person receives what he or she puts out, but I never dream for any wrong doer to receive the pain or selfishness they have placed on others. I simply feel sorry for those who have yet to grow and see the bigger picture in life and see that we are here to help each other succeed in our individual tasks, not to out do or manipulate each other in order to further ourselves.
Being kind to others, even though they may not deserve it, does not make you a “push over” or “soft”. Putting others feelings into perspective, does not determine the amount of success you achieve. We are all on our individual roads and we lead them in our unique ways. We change, we develop, and no matter what we do, whether wrong or right, we encounter hurdles to makes us stronger. I’m not saying change because I don’t like how the majority of our society acts; I’m saying, listen to what I have to say and interpret it in your own way, just understand that every action you go through with will have a consequence, whether good or bad, and that will have an imprint on you for the rest of your life. It is better to start discovering the changes that need to be made earlier on in life than looking back and think “I should have done better.”
