We can consider anything, from whether change careers to what color socks to wear, but when the word “consideration” is used alone, it usually refers to how we treat another person or other people. Showing consideration, or being considerate, means acting in a way that is mindful and respectful of their circumstances, carefully considered.
Consideration is more than mere civility but the latter is also a salient topic in the United States today.
