There are positive ripples...and there are negative ripples.
A case in point is a friend of mine, who did something she believed
was right for her. Unfortunately the majority didn't view it as positively as she did. And till today, whatever she does that resembles the old action is seen as suspect. And she is treated accordingly.
What is happening to her is kinda like ripples that keep destroying as they go on and on.
Some may say, who dares to judge? But then again, we all live in a society. This society needs rules in order to function properly. And these rules are guarded closely...sometimes even viciously. The alternative, you see, is chaos. Well, at least I think so.
That is why we should be careful about the things we do and the things we say. They have a way of living on ... way beyond our own short memories.
Today too, I heard this during a briefing :
When you change your thinking, you change your beliefs.
When you change your beliefs, you change your expectations.
When you change your expectations, you change your attitude.
When you change your attitude, you change your behaviour.
When you change your behaviour, you change your performance.
When you change your performance, you change your life.
I wish I could tell this to that friend of mine.
