Who is the person in your life who can do no wrong? Describe this person and tell us why you hold them in such high esteem.
I saw this prompt last evening, since then I tried to think who might that person be. I cannot find such a person, it goes to show there is no such thing as a perfect person as there is none who can claim to be perfectly happy.
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!
Morality Play is a subject dealt by people in their own special way. I grew up in a fairly conservative family. The difference between right and wrong was clearly defined by my mother. At a very young age it is hard to fathom,what our elders say. When I was old enough to distinguish between the two,I could distinctly see the pitfall of either one.
Under the protection of my mother,I knew what was acceptable and what was not. I tried to follow my mother’s advice.Then there is my faith and the environment helped me immensely. I developed a conscience in a very young age which cautioned me every step of the way. Morality to me is something one deals with consciously and unconsciously.
There are a lot of people who don’t share,what I believe in. It is not appropriate to brainwash them,they have to learn themselves if they dislike hearing from others i.e relatives and friends.
If they derive from sources other than their well-wishers,which is sometimes the case.I will give them my blessing and let them make their choice. I certainly refuse to fan the fire of rebellion.
