The Tolerance of Society

In today’s society, it seems as if we live in an enviornment in which you are judged and viewed based upon the path you have taken and the path you choose to take . It does not matter whether this path be career, education, or desire. What matters is that in the end, you are more successful than the person competing next to you. Pressure is a major aspect these days and sometimes, when faced under pressure, we tend to decide to do what we wish to do.

Everyone has their own personal defintion of what sucess means to them. Whether it be becoming the next President of the United States or simply taking on the family business, what makes you happy will be your idea of sucess. With society making it seem like the only “right” sucess is to be on top, we often find ourselves judging what others are doing and questioning what could be so pleasant about doing that? You see, this is where tolerance must come into play. Your perfect sucess might be to win the loterry while the person standing right next you idea might be to become the worlds greatest lawyer.

It does not matter who has “the right” path to sucess because to be honest, there is no “right” choice of sucess to make. All that really matters is that we are tolerant of what others are doing and that we truly understand that what they are doing is making them a happy person and giving them that positive outlook that we all must have on life.

This generation is beginning to mess with our vision of tolerance and is actually showing us that poor judgement is a better trait to take on. Society and the people within it will find that everyone’s idea of sucess can be different yet equal if we all learn to take the tolerance we learn everyday and apply it to the understanding of others.

Once this is accomplished, the constant competition that is found throughout the world, will simmer.

  1. Colleen: You need to watch your spelling and punctuation! “Your perfect sucess might be to win the loterry while the person standing right next you idea might be to become the worlds greatest lawyer.”
    What does “this generation is beginning to mess with our vision of tolerance and is actually showing us that poor judgement is a better trait to take on” …Do you mean that your generation is less tolerant. That your generation would rather accept making poor judgements? This is an interesting notion, but where is the evidence of this? Perhaps if you provided an example?
