Sometimes we care more for things than people
Why is it that sometimes we are more attentive towards physical possessions than towards the welfare of people? Analyze the reasons behind this behaviour.
As the mindset of people is transitioning towards materialism sometimes we observe that people get too possessive about their material belongings. Sometimes these materialistic things become more valuable than people and relationships. People at times regret and fret if things get damaged or lost as if it was everything for them. For example, a person who has brought a new car sometimes will scold their child or even hit them even if they unknowingly scratch or damage it. Husband sometimes will start fighting if an expensive crockery happens to fall from wife's hands and breaks. Sometimes we spend more time with things that people and at times we care more for things rather than people and relationships. Sometimes people spend hours and days in regret and anger if their precious belongings get lost or damaged and they even forget their responsibilities and duties behind it.
Is it right to be so possessive about things and that too to the extent that human relations get compromised? Truth is that things can get replaced but the relations and feelings once damaged are hard to replace. It is wise to treat things like things and people like people, these two cannot be interchanged. If your belongings get lost or damaged it is natural to feel angry, regretful and sad for some time but then forget it and move on and do not let that hamper your human relations and progress. Let us love people more than things.
