“The inclination to goodness is imprinted deeply in the nature of man.” ~ Francis Bacon.
I believe that people are generally good. Truly. The world over. Sometime they just need a little guidance to draw it out.
I don’t believe in born bad.
I believe in nurture over nature.
And I wonder, what hurt you so badly?
Most people, I think, do the best they can with the skills, knowledge, understanding and resources they have at that time.
What do you think?
I don’t want to think that anyone deliberately makes others unhappy, hurts others or wants to make others suffer. I prefer to believe they just don’t get it.
Perhaps this is wrong. Naïve.
I’d like to think we can build on kindness, love and goodness and change the world.
I have to believe that; otherwise the world will change me.
