Virtue of the Week: Consideration

Consideration is being thoughtful of other people and their feelings. You consider how your actions affect them. You pay careful attention to what others like and don’t like, and do things that give them happiness.

You are practicing consideration when you :

• Respect other people’s needs and feelings

• Consider others’ needs as important as your own

• Stop and think how your actions will affect people

• Put yourself in other people’s shoes

• Give tender attention

• Think of little things to bring others happiness

Affirmation:

I am considerate of others. I stop and think about how my actions may affect them. I do thoughtful things for people.

The Source supports the Virtues Project, an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities. We will publish one of the virtues developed by the project each week.

The Virtues Project is an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities aligned to 52 virtues – such as “compassion,” “integrity,” “respect.” The Virtues Project promotes community capacity-building to teach positive behaviors and attitudes and contribute to healthy and supportive environments across sectors. This is an initiative originated with a work group of Early Childhood Advisory Committee of the Children and Families Council and is moving forward with support from the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands. We are working in collaboration with the Department of Education to infuse V.I. culture into the messages and to implement The Virtues Project in the public schools. The goal is to engage the community in discussion and awareness of the “Virtue of the Week” in schools, child care settings, home, and the workplace through the media, religious institutions, schools and centers, government agencies, and business organizations.
