Decency not only on the outside


When decency is being mentioned today , people mainly focus on how one dresses up we seem to forget that decency doesn't just has to do with your outer appearance but everything that concerns you as as human your mindset, ur thought and how you handle people. 

     Before I go ahead will like to bring out few definition of what being decent means. The English dictionary says being decent is having a suitable conformity to basic moral standards showing intergrity , fairness or other characteristics associated with moral uprightness; being decent according to the Collins English dictionary being decent is conforming to the recognized standard of propriety, good taste, modesty, etc., as in behavior or speech. Decency is then the act of being decent. 

     According to the above definition one could see that being decent doesn't just have to do with our dressing alone or our way of behavior . This has to do with our thoughts , what goes on in your mind also has to be decent one cannot just be exhibiting decency on the outside and on the inside it's the opposite. The holy book says one should guard his heart with all diligence for out of it comes the issues of life . If what goes on in one's mind indecent , then with time it will make itself manifest in such a person life.

     In essence , as we live on this Earth let's make it a priority to live decent that both in the inside and outside and even our ways of relating with our fellow humans and the moment we endeavor to do so life will be become easier than we see it.
