Courtesy in a Healthy Society

Today, a lot of people don’t consider that courtesy is very important to a society. They don’t care about others’ feelings. They just want to do what they want to. And if this kind of thinking speared to everyone, who can imagine what kind of world will be. If every one doesn’t mind courtesy, there will be a lot of disputation. They will become very narrow-minded. People will always fussing over trifles, fighting. And that will contribute to a lot of social problems, such as: murder, setting up each other .etc. I’m sure that everybody doesn’t want to see this happen, or even happen to themselves. And that kind of society will always have wars to fight, argument to solve. Will somebody like to live in this environment? I don’t think so.

So I think that courtesy is a very necessary and important factor to a healthy society. If people can respect each other, care for each other, then the frequency of argument and fighting can be reduced. And with that, people will have more time to do the positive things, such as: playing sports, developing their culture, economic .etc. Take northern Europe for example, why they can live so happily, and have promoted economic? I can say, one of the key factors is that they have good courtesy. Every time I saw Japanese who live in the countryside, they are all very friendly, and they live a very peaceful life. Both of those two countries are very advanced. Courtesy is obviously matters to a healthy society. .Sometimes I can’t understand why some people always act so self-willed? If they can have more courtesy, be polite to others, then a lot of sources can be saved, like people don’t need to go to the court house all the time for something that is not counts.

But the courtesy I’m talking about is not just hypocrisy, is something beyond the surface, and is from the bottom of one’s heart .Some persons like to pretend that they are very polite, once their mask is torn off by others, and then no one will trust them any more. So, it’s very significant to cultivate one’s character. Good character leads to good courtesy, and that kind of courtesy is from deep in your heart, not disguise. If courtesy is sincerely from one’s heart, I think everyone around the world will be really friendly and peaceful. A country have this citizen will be very delighted, and that can become one of the country’s charm.

Above all, a healthy society requires good courtesy, and good courtesy come from good character. As long as we make effort to do it, I believe that this world will become healthier!
