Do you have a considerate mind? I’m always careful don’t to forget this mind. I think this is very important for us to live in comfort. Why I think so to? Because we are living as part of  society, the society doesn’t consist if there is no consideration. Mother Teresa said “Kind (considerate) words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless”. I feel exactly the same way about this word. Consideration  will make for good relationship, world peace, and the growth of yourself. 

First of all, consideration will make for good relationship. It is very important for us. There is no bullying problem or suicide if everyone has this mind. There are consideration  , we could notice and support who want to commit suicide. In addition, it leads to development of the business and country. Satisfying customer satisfaction is connected with the growth of business and nations. 

Second, it leads to world peace. There is  no dispute, racial discrimination or poverty, people are help and support each other. The countries in the world will unite together, it will become good environment with many smiling face and happiness. 

Finally, it makes who can have inner reserves. So, if you don’t have inner reserves, you can’t have consideration. If you try to have consideration everyday, your life will change.  Because consideration will make  you  liked by others, gentle , and a good listener  . And these good relationship, world peace, and the growth of yourself  will  make you more wonderful person. 

Consideration is a basic of  human morality. I think everyone should always have this.
