Where do your morals come from–your family? Your faith?Your philosophical world view? How do you deal with those who don’t share them, or derive them from a different source?
We all learn right and wrong from an early age,whether we put it into practice is a whole different thing. Some of us follow what is right without questioning it, others might have a tendency to rebel it all depends on human nature. We learn this in school,at home, at work, we try our best to conform,sometimes circumstances can deter us from doing the right thing.
Our conscience plays a big part, we feel awful if we do something that we know ourselves is wrong. Then there are some who have no conscience, they lie time after time without feeling anything. They can and will make you look like an evil person , if they so desire.
How will I deal with them? I will stay away from them, it will not bother me, as long as my path does not cross with them. Some of these people do not learn from a different source, their mind is corrupt, they do it for attention and there are people naive enough to believe them.
Then there is temptation, an inclination to commit sin,it requires a strong will to resist it, that word ‘will’ is not present in their mind!
I haven’t done any of the things listed, sometimes I can be very impulsive beyond reason. A short while ago I suddenly felt no one likes me, so I complained, it was the first step, this attitude I took made some people unhappy,which I didn’t think about, now I have to undo everything by apologizing that I’ve made a mistake.
I still am in the process of smoothening my mistake. I think I have to give a break to my impulsive nature.
I think I’d like to let the dust settle, before I succumb to any kind of temptation.
I tried to quit eating sweet stuff such as cookies,chocolate,desserts, I always tell myself it’s not good for me. It makes me gain weight, or have problems with my teeth,and the worst thing is diabetes.
I managed to curtail eating these things, but not completely. I used to bake a variety of cookies,find recipes from ‘Better Homes And Gardens’ and would fill my cookie tins. I baked them for my kids. I have one habit that I want to lose,it is tasting them. I can never stop after one, I’d eat four or five and then stop.
I decided to make the cookies and not taste them at all. My husband would say, “you know kids your Mom knows her cookies are horrible that’s why she doesn’t eat them, she gives them to us.” To prove it was not true,I’d eat them.
When I couldn’t resist the temptation,I stopped baking all the sweets. I still eat some but not the way I used to.
