DP Daily Prompt: Litmus,Litmus on the Wall
If you had to come up with one question the answer to which would determine whether or not you could be friends with a person you’ve just met, what would it be? What would the right answer be?
My question is: Is it safe to make friends with someone I’ve just Met?
In my mind the right answer to my question is: In this world of ours there are a variety of personalities, there is no doubt, ” human being is essentially good and peaceful.”, it’s a quote by a famous philosopher. In my mind I know at birth a child is an innocent soul, he is as fresh and pure as a daisy.
When this same human grows up he comes into contact with a variety of people, some are good some are evil, sometimes this little soul can be tempted to do things that are evil, this is one side he hasn’t learned,his parents has taught him what is good and he should always be truthful, honest and trustworthy.
When he meets someone who teaches him the exact opposite, he will be tempted to try. If he’s lucky he’d decide on his own this is not the right path, but if his curiosity gets the better of him, he’d continue to do illegal things secretly, after a while it’ll be a habit and he won’t be able to turn it around.
Good and evil seems to go side by side, this feeling will make me want to know the person first, before I try to be friendly.
