How You can learn to become honorable
If you happen to ask yourself this question: Why should I be honorable? For one, the simple answer is that it will make the world a better, peaceful place. Imagine a world where people care for you, where no one takes advantage of you, and where people are always fair towards you. A world where the elderly and the sick are honored and not treated as a mere number in society. A world where the poor no longer need to face their burdens alone. Being honorable can become a compass, a helper to what decisions we make in terms of what is right and what is wrong. If you take the time to look at what it means to be honorable, you can’t go wrong. Chivalry doesn’t have to be dead. Certain virtues could possibly make life on earth more peaceful.
As Leon Gautier’s La Chevalerie summarized in the ancient code of chivalry.
Always and everywhere be right and good against evil and injustice
Be yourself and tell the truth
Don’t hide who you are behind sugar-coated conversations. Saying the truth might not make you the most popular person but people will know that they can always trust you to stick up to your own values. Being honorable means being authentic with yourself and with those around you.
Don’t talk behind peoples backs
Smiling when someone is engaging in conversation with you, and then talking badly about them when they are not around is dishonorable. This will eventually catch up, as people will begin to realize that if the culprit has no problem saying bad things about others, they might also be saying bad things about them. If you don’t like something someone is doing, tell them how you feel. Sneaking around behind people’s backs is very dishonorable.
Work hard, don’t steal
Taking advantage of other peoples hard work is dishonorable. Work hard and earn your money. Don’t rip people off and pay them what you owe when you can. Don’t take credit for somebody else’s hard work or ideas. Create your own things and do the work that you need to do to be successful. Attaining success honorably will inspire others to look up to you.
Defend the weak
Being honorable means standing up for those who can’t stand up for themselves. The poor, the abused, the weak, the disabled, the elderly. It doesn’t have to be extreme. It could be helping an older person cross the street, help a child who fell off his bicycle, giving some food to the poor.
Give everyone a fair chance
Don’t favor one person’s point of view over another because of their status in society. We all come from different backgrounds and we all have different experiences. I have seen very sad articles circulating online about how the poor are lazy and don’t know how to invest their money. This mindset only comes out because of a one-sided view. Because many people truly don’t understand the walls that prevent the poor from crossing over. Give everyone a fair chance no matter where they are from.
