The importance of character development



 I really think it is very important to develop character for the following two reasons.
 The first reason is that it encourages people to develop their individuality. If they don’t develop their character enough, they will become characterless people with a sense of sheer conformity. This is one of the worst things because individual ability is being valued more and more. Therefore, if the number of people with great originality increases, it will be a real benefit to society.
 The second reason is that it leads people to respect other’s point of view because people with character know there is nothing wrong with being different and can respect how other people feel. Now that one has more opportunities to communicate with others from different cultures and there are a lot of problems in the world, it is very important to respect other people and help with each other to solve the problems.
 As I mentioned, for the aforesaid two reasons, I really think it is very important to develop character.
