A pause to ponder: Do we keep a close look on the way we treat our neighbors? Sounds like hitting only the surface of reality. Maybe you are part of those who agree among the billions of people in earth, such a task is quite a noble thing to do. The task is fairly easy if we aim to please others at our best but that doesn’t qualify us from the whole point of the question. What if we consider not only the good but those neighbors that would intentionally harm us despite of pleasing them at our best. Then the conclusion of the answer will be different.
The truth is we are not capable of pleasing all our neighbors. It’s not our obligation to do so on the first place. To change this, I suggest that instead of pleasing all of them, why not just mind our own business for the purpose of keeping good and peaceful social environment. Not resorting to tolerance but rather self-discipline and self-control. We are all human and we do fall into mistakes. Blaming others wouldn’t help and discouragements would not uplift ones heart.
Dancing is moving to the music without stepping on anyone’s toes,
pretty much the same as life.

What was done we cannot undo. Since this world have already undergone such good and bad phenomenal events, lets learn from those that bring light in and heap hope to those who are at their despair instead of the bad that made everything worst during their generation until now.
People are not a robot that we can easily fix, it is our character that mostly influence our choices. By going on that self-discipline and self-control track, we will be able to free ourselves from what hold us back and achieved the good that we can all have.
