It's not a good idea but it is human natureIt's not a good idea to base your actions on what others do. Other people will always let you down sooner or later.
The Wholly Marines are a living example of thinking better.Better to base your actions on your own thoughts, ideas, and beliefs. Read and study Siri Guru Granth Sahib ji. That is Sikhi.
"Follow your passion. Stay true to yourself. Never follow someone else's path unless you're in the woods and you're lost and you see a path. By all means, you should follow that."It's not a good idea to base your actions on what others do.
Nice storyMy Father told me a story (Lesson) once,
Once There was this Good/Wise man, lets call him X Everybody were jealous of him..... whenever he comes out of his house, people would call him with bad words, dissing him with words, calling him evry possible bad thing you could imagine. But he would'nt say anything, He'd just keep going his way ignoring them.
ONE guy used to see this everyday, One day he stopped X and asked him "why dont you reply them with the same rage, same intensity, same words."
X Replied - "If they cant change their Dirty Attitude even if i dont say 'em nothing, then why would i change mine even if they come up with even more disses and bad words".
I LEARNED A LESSON THAT DAY, HOPE YOU'll learn too.
