What We all Want (and What We’re Missing)

what we all want

People want different things. Some want a fast paced life while others want to take it easy. Some enjoy big crowds while others like to be left alone. Yet there’s something every one of us wants. If you want to know what we all want (and what we’re missing), then read on.

Different Things

Because we are all so different, it’s unusual for us to want the same things. Some people like it loud; others like it quiet. Some like to work in silence while others prefer listening to music while they work.

There are so many ways in which we’re different that it’s hard to imagine us all searching for the same thing.

What We All Want

If we’re all so different, then what is it that we all want?

It’s quite simple: we want people to be patient with us.

We mess up. We make mistakes. We don’t do things perfectly. So when we screw up, we want people to take a breath and realize we’re doing the best we know how. 

It’s what we all want (and what we’re missing), but here’s how we can get it.

How to Get It

If we want people to be patient with us, then we need to follow the golden rule. We need to be patient with others.

We need to understand that when people act poorly, they are reacting: reacting from pain and hurt from others not being patient with them.

Impatience breeds impatience, so we need to give patience to get patience. It’s what we all want and what we’re missing. We simply need to show others the type of acceptance that we want.

Be patient with those you meet today. Treat them with the same consideration you would want. It’s a great way to make a better world.
