The tolerance in humanity

Knowing how to listen and take into account other opinions in relation to a subject subject to different convictions, not only develops tolerance but also the appreciation of other facets that are beyond the individual's vision, and therefore, it is possible to broaden the concept to achieving better results in certain studies.

All people have their criteria formed in relation to their lifestyle, point of view on the politics of their country, the way of educating their children, the way of behaving before others (education, reaction, manners, and others) , and many other concepts susceptible to approval or rejection, in addition to all the precepts and complexities thereof.

Adela Cortina, a student of this subject, says: "The interest in understanding others and in helping them carry out their life projects, is understood as an active respect, which usually leads to the concept of solidarity."

The vision of each human being is different from the world that surrounds him (although there are many perceptions united by sympathy and common opinions), all based on the way he was educated by his parents or relatives. The experiences and examples on the part of those who guided him from his earliest childhood, in addition to genetic factors, add up a ladder that will direct him, either positively or negatively, in his behavior towards others, throughout his life.

Sometimes limitations must exist, as some extremes are exaggerations, and tolerance is no exception. "There is a limit where tolerance ceases to be a virtue." Edmund Burke.

Mahatma Gandhi's phrase fits an accurate reality: "Since I am imperfect and need the tolerance and kindness of others, I also have to tolerate the world's defects until I can find the secret that allows me to remedy them" .

The actions of the human being are the essential points that will lead to an answer, either in the short or long term. As is the case of those individuals, with solid moral examples from their parents, in addition to an education full of love and understanding. Or with some human failure (divorce, mutual misunderstanding of parents). In both situations, exceptional human beings have emerged, for themselves and others. Professionals or with honest trades contributing to a worthy and appreciated work, such as:

Doctors, engineers, biologists, accountants, cooks, contractors, builders, architects, educators, sheet metal workers, cabinet makers, and others.

Artists of different kinds, who contribute with their creativity: singers, actors, writers, painters, sculptors, and others.

On the other hand, those unfortunate individuals due to their social deviations, the vast majority have suffered a childhood of affective and (or) monetary deficiencies, (no social class is exclusive, because there are people in the world from all social sectors, with undesirable behaviors) and in response their behaviors are totally wrong, but in their view, it is something normal, since it drives them on many occasions the hatred, resentment and revenge, before life itself:

Criminals, and others. The latter usually have a diffuse perception of their thoughts, behavior and decisions in society and are usually very intolerant. (There are also mental disorders that cause bad behaviors, and many of them have their origin in traumas that arose in childhood) And they are overly praised by intolerance of certain situations that they face on a daily basis.

"When I meet someone I don't care if he is white, black, Jewish or Muslim. It is enough for me to know that he is a human being" Walt Whitman.

Conclusion:

The human being daily faces the different egos,
with which it must survive and find a key point, which is harmonious when it is cohesive with a view to obtaining a point of view that takes into account different important factors, such as experimentation, reliable evidence of its veracity, general convenience or advantages.

Tolerance in our lives

Tolerance is like a soothing tea that we always have at our disposal, through our reasoning.

Quarrels or fights only leave a bad feeling, a bad taste. When I talk about quarrels or fights, I am referring to arguments and also to physical aggression. Discussions that after a heated uproar, reach the fists. After the savagery… What is left? Did you get a satisfying feeling? Was anything achieved? Of course not!

In a discussion, both opponents of the word, vigorously defend their point of view. After the first attacks of compulsive words defending their way of seeing the object of the discussion, the offenses come that many times have nothing to do with the issue for which the difference began, and finally, they go to the hands or be it to physical violence, due to the lack of something essential for coexistence in society; the tolerance.

Tolerance is like a soothing tea that we always have at our disposal, through our reasoning. If we reason, we think about things better, and each step to be taken, or reaction will be leveraged by several positive elements, as they are;
Respect, trust in ourselves, and patience above all.

When we trust ourselves, we are not bothered by the large number of contrary opinions that may exist against our criteria or way of seeing a certain matter, because it is a fact that there will always be other views, regardless of whether the reason is or is not in agreement. our part.}Reason is projected through three modes:
1. Through dogmas seen through the eyes of religion, that is, the wisdom of God.
2. By the sight of men, that is, by established human laws.
3. And for the complexities of life.

All people have their criteria formed in relation to their lifestyle, point of view on the politics of their country, the way of educating their children, the way of behaving before others (education, reaction, manners, and others) , and many other concepts susceptible to approval or rejection.

Sometimes limitations must exist, as some extremes are exaggerations, and tolerance is no exception. "There is a limit where tolerance ceases to be a virtue." Edmund Burke says.

This applies when the aggressions are many, such as continuous and physical offenses. In those cases, the authorities must be resorted to to stop those acts.

Conclusion:
Every day we face the different egos, with which we must relate at some point and find a key point, which must be harmonious when it unites in a positive way, avoiding confrontations.

We must always be clear that each person is different and consequently their opinions may not be the same as ours, but it does not mean that they are bad people, at this point respect for others is essential in our minds.
