Look around, you hear and see things you may or may not wish to see. With those actions and words, you reflect it on yourself. You start to wonder if those things that you hear and see are something you do. You stop yourself, look back and smile because you realized you cared. Then again, as the smile grew bigger, a frown also appeared, if I cared, do other people care too?
I noticed something. We are a dishonest group of people. We are so scared of the outcome of being a truthful person, we believe that following this "norm" thing will make everything alright. Whenever we are asked a question, we seem to avoid telling the truth at the very beginning. This may be because a lot of people are afraid of perspectives and judgements they'll receive.
Another thing could be that there's people who are in denial. I look around in my class when a teacher ask us a question and no single hand was up to be truthful. To be fair, I, myself don't even put my hand up because I am scared. Admitting to something knowing a possible consequence is hard. People then start to "common strategy" this and continue to take these actions until they become a routine. It's a habit, a bad one. We try to fix it, but we continue to follow through our bad actions because we don't know how to fix the problem.
How can we fix something like this when some don't even know that it's an issue? We need to reflect and start finding ways to be honest with ourselves and look at how we can use this to help society. Start looking, seek for problems and solve them. Let's try to be somewhat honest with ourselves and others.
