DO: work together.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how much human beings rely on each other. From random acts of kindness on behalf of a stranger, to the everyday support and warmth we receive from friends and family, we’d be utterly lost without each other. Think of how nice it is when you have your arms full and somebody holds the door for you. Or, how grateful you are when your roommate does your dishes just because. That’s not to say that you just take, take, take, however. Maybe you help and old woman with her suitcase on the train, or get your roommate back by preparing a delicious dinner.
It’s all a cycle of giving and receiving. I like to think of it as teamwork survival. Society and life are all a big machine of people working together. When you think about it, there’s a feeling of security and warmth in that.
We get by on the kindness of others, so do something nice for somebody just because it will help them out or make them happier today. Be a team player, work together, and fill your role.
