The figure of merit, which sets us apart from other living beings, is perhaps the variety of emotions we have and our inept ability to express them. Where has one heard that animals share jokes and have a good laugh? Or getting hurt by remarks made by other people? Also be it any form of remark or statement, we humans are verbally able to express our feelings.
Every person perceives life on the basis of the set ideals in his mind. He may be a shrewd businessman or a strict teacher, but his individuality has to be respected. Also being human we all have got our own sets of egos and morale's. In short a mental constitution has been formed inside our minds regarding how we should present ourselves socially, how to take things said by other people in our stride and how to blurt it out when we feel something is wrong. In this process if you are too strong on your bunch of ideals, it is not necessary that another member of your clan will see them in the same way.
By being open mouthed on our views on the world we never realize that we tend to hurt others directly or indirectly through our actions or deeds. This if taken in the right sense can be constructive, but if taken in a different way may produce emotion-shattering results for the person who has been made the target. The first and foremost principle to avoid this is to always respect the feelings of others and try to mentally gauge yourself in his position. It is always better to see both sides of the coin before tossing. When you hurt a person, it remains in your mind for a few seconds, but it may be the block affecting each and every moment of his life. Avoid shooting down words like a barrel of bullets when angry as u may repent it in leisure.
