Perspective/pərˈspektiv ; noun
a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.
At this age, I have encountered a few people who only see things from their point of view. They are strongly opiniated and always think that they are right. Some turns life into a competition, always wanting to emphasize that they had it worst than you.
When it comes to opinion,of course each individual would be inclined to believe that their own opinion is the truest of em all. I think its very crucial that one have the decency to consider things from another perspective.
As a social media addict(self-proclaimed) I have seen many status on Facebook and tweets that sounds condemning instead of educating. I admit I might be guilty of this too... I have to be honest, there are times when I wanted so badly to comment on certain issues but I stopped myself because I sound arrogant and condemning others for not knowing.
The doctors,medical students,pharmacists,and other professionals' effort in wiping off myths revolving in the society should be applauded. But in doing so, I think we need to articulate our thoughts and express it wisely. If our intention is to educate the society on why vaccination is important then explain how vaccine works instead of just telling that its important (thats me btw guilty of tweeting sarcastic remarks on vaccine). Looking back at it makes me question myself did I feel superior when I tweeted this? What was going in my head? Coz I definitely sounded arrogant.
Abdullah ibn Mas’ud reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “No one who has the weight of a seed of arrogance in his heart will enter Paradise.” Someone said, “But a man loves to have beautiful clothes and shoes.” The Prophet said, “Verily, Allah is beautiful and He loves beauty. Arrogance means rejecting the truth and looking down on people.”
May we all be protected against the tiniest bit of arrogance in our heart and become better at what we're doing now. 💞
