Thank you so much for your interest in The Insight, by Sheba. I hope you enjoyed this week’s blogs about “Strengths of Love, Humanity and Justice.”
Next week’s topic will be “Acceptance.”
Friday Review: Happy Reading!
- Let’s just agree to get along—it’s as simple as that! Realistically, we’re not always going to agree with one another. Agreeableness doesn’t necessarily mean that we have to share the same opinions, beliefs or ideas with every person we care about. It simply means we need to be agreeable in practice, choose to respectfully disagree, and sometimes compromise for the good of the relationship. It’s a matter of being considerate of another person’s wants and needs while appropriately voicing your own and working with others in your relationships to satisfy those needs.
- It’s not always easy to show kindness in the moment, especially to people we aren’t particularly fond of. Take time out of each day to quiet your mind and cultivate kindness within yourself so that you may extend that kindness to everyone around you throughout the day.
- Citizenship is a strength everyone should possess and work toward strengthening throughout life. We are connected to every other person in some way or another, and are thus incapable of leaving this world without having made an impact on several lives. We decide, however, whether to use this connection to improve the well-being of others and humanity as a whole, or simply to use these connections to promote ourselves.
- Character strengths are not independent of each other. Some, like fairness and citizenship, go hand in hand. It is important, however, that we work toward building strengths strategically, so that we may continue to grow and improve our abilities to create the greatest, most positive impact, possible.
The Insight— We do not strengthen ourselves strictly for the sake of making ourselves strong. We strengthen ourselves so that we may also support others. If we foster the strengths of love, kindness, citizenship and fairness, we will be able to sustain ourselves and each other.
Have a wonderful weekend!
