There were times in my life when I would look good externally just to please other people. Instead of washing my face 2-3 times in a day, I'd wash it 4-5 times when I'd have to go outside to be in a company of my friends. Instead of brushing my teeth twice a day (mornings and before sleeping at nights), I'd brush my teeth three or four times in a day before going out to meet my friends. On days I'd be eating at home, I would hardly think of washing my hands before eating. When I'd be eating with friends outside home, I would rush to wash my hands first before eating breakfast, lunch and dinner! I would take more time to groom myself when I'd go out with friends than when I'd go out alone. Just few months back when I broke off my friendship with my close male friend, I just gave up taking care of myself because I found no single good reason to take care of myself. "For whom shall I now look good for?" is the question that came repeatedly into my mind. I thought - Is it due to socializing with friends we humans tend to take more care of ourselves than when we are alone? Answer is yes. When we socialize with our friends, we subconsciously tend to present ourselves well than when we roam out alone. I wanted to look good this time for myself, even when none of my friends would be around me. I found no reason to look good before stepping outside home when I was not going to meet anybody but just go out for a walk alone. But I made an effort to groom for myself. Slowly, I realized we do a lot many good deeds when we are along with friends than when we are alone. But why be the "goody-goody" just in front of others? Why not adopt being a good human being as a lifestyle? Why not do good deeds when we are alone repeatedly so that irrespective of other people being there or not being there in our lives, we still do good? Make an effort be good inward and outside for yourself first so that you continue to be so for ever.
