Why is that we do not have the patience to look inwards?More often than not, we are blinded when it comes to our own weaknesses. We criticize others and even gang up against someone for whatever reason. This often happens in most corporate organizations. At home, we ventilate all anger on our wives or husbands, or even children.
The precise point is that when we ourselves have so many weaknesses, we have no right to talk about others. Or, at best, we should at least be guarded in whatever we speak, at any point in time.
This is exactly why our elders and forefathers made it a point to get feedback from others about their behavior. Until just forty years ago, life was not as complicated as it is today. We did not have smartphones; we did not have to deal with the problem of overuse of such phones by children who are just five years old.
The more we think of others and their ways of living or behavior or whatever, the more we need to look inwards. Harsh words uttered in the family cannot be taken back. We need serious introspection at whatever we do. Our behavior is not that easy to understand and this is precisely why we need to be even more careful at any attempt in looking inwards.
