We’ve all had those moral science classes in school which would turn into game periods and be forgotten. It was okay then, because we practiced morals in our day to day lives and didn’t need a 40 minute lesson to remind us of it. But today, after all these years I’m sure you wouldn’t mind revision of a few things which we forgot over time or neglected because well, life happened.
Your morals and beliefs shape your entire being. So it’s pretty essential to make sure they are clear and conformed in your mind.
1)Honesty: The most important of it all. It is so imperative to be honest with yourself first. And then with others. Let people know what your intentions are for them. Build each other up and nurture your relationship. And if not please be honest about your intentions and save the other person’s misery.
People now a day’s have become so self immersed and apathic. The while “I don’t give a shit” act is seriously old and tired guys. It is good to give a shit. It means you have something to look forward to.
2) Respect others- Everyone you know is fighting a battle you know nothing about. They are trying to do the best they can because ultimately they have to look out for themselves.
Wish them well and let them be.
But don’t get played by people.
3) Respect yourself- Don’t be a pushover. Keep your head clear about what works for you and what doesn’t. Stand up for yourself. You are all you have.
3)Develop intelligence- Bookish knowledge and multiple degrees in not what intelligence means. Sure it’s a part of it, but try to develop it in a more evolved and deeper sense. Develop understanding, nurturing, responsibility and love.
4) Take responsibility- Things change with time and we get stuck doing things the old way. It’s important to sit and reflect on your actions every once in a while.
And if you’re unhappy with your decisions, you know it’s time to grow up and revise your morals some more.
And of course we are all humans, bound to make mistakes. I think the only thing we can do is be honest about it and make sure no one gets hurt in the process.
Cheers to growing up and holding our moral ground.
Lots of love,
