I have been raised in a family where values are important, ethics are crucial, optimism is essential, charisma is your image and above all your faith is what defines you. I grew up in an environment that tells us to have a pure heart, to be easy going, to be polite, to be honest and to be close to your creator for He is the only one that has full control over your heart. To be completely honest I did not always abide by the rules, I had to rebel for a bit to fit in with my friends or just because I did not see anything wrong with what I was doing. But eventually I grew up and learnt to respect myself more and to try to better myself. From being and annoying stubborn spoilt child I grew up to be bubbly and improving year after year.
I then started to mingle with different mentalities, with people that have been raised with different priorities, which was pretty confusing because I thought that those priorities should have been everyones priorities. I thought everyone abided by the rules of whats right and whats wrong, I thought everyone accepted that there are things that are wrong even if we like them not to be, but it turns out that it is human nature to manipulate whats right fore our liking.
Do we bend the rules to fit what we want them to, rather than to abide by them? Well I believe that this depends on our moral compass, if we are strongly believe in whats right and what is wrong and that sticking to the right truly makes us a better person then we do not give ourself leeway to bend the rules, we get accustomed to whats right.
