I always used to think that what makes us a good human? I read many books and articles to get my answer but none of them satisfied me. Years later when I stopped thinking about this, I got the answer just by focusing on my own life. I always read or heard that there is no proper definition of life, now I understand what that actually means. The definition of Good Human I have in my head can’t be explained in words but I will share my life experience with you in the best way.
For better understanding, I will tell you what Bad Human first. The major and the biggest difference between a good and a bad human is “mentality”. A bad human will do a bad thing and will force his brain to take that bad thing as normal. For example, a bad human will lie then for a few seconds he will think that he has done a bad thing. But then to satisfy himself he will force himself to take that thing as normal. When a person starts to consider bad things as normal, it means that he is slowly converting into a bad human.
A bad person always tries to show himself as a good human. If a bad human does a good thing. He will forget all his bad deeds and will tell about the good deed to everyone. He will try to be fake just to show people that he is a good person. Deep down he knows that he is a bad person, but he does not want to accept this truth. Another fact is that a bad person sees himself better than other people. He thinks that he is the best. Everything he is doing is good and not a single person around is better than him.
Now I will tell you about a good human. I said “good”, not the “perfect” because no soul in this world is perfect. A good person never counts his good deeds. If he does a bad thing, he regrets it. He promises himself not to do any bad thing again. He doesn’t tell his good deeds to everyone. A good person does not see himself better than other people around him. He takes inspiration from every single good deed someone’s doing. He never tries to be fake or to show people that he is a good human.
Good and bad, both types of humans are present in this world. A bad human just has to change his mentality to be a good human. A little guidance can convert him into a better person. One of my favorite quote on this topic is:
“Never be so bad that people don’t come near you and never be so good that people trample you underfoot”
At last, I just want to say that try to be natural. Being fake doesn’t make you a good person. So, be natural to be good. This is what I’ve learned till now.
