Morals – Pass Them On


It seems there are more and more people who lack any type of morals or ethics.  There are many people who feel it’s ok to keep the couple of bucks the cashier accidentally gave them and explain it away by saying it was owed to them from days or months ago when so-and-so ripped them off.  These tiny acts define a person, and when a person is constantly inconsiderate to other people, or is always putting themselves first, it becomes obvious that person has no problem inconveniencing others for the sake of making their life easier, and most of the time it is because they are lacking morals.  There are people who are polar opposite as well.  These are the people who try to live “by the rules” and it is because of this high level of morals and ethics a conflict can arise when they find themselves surrounded by people who don’t care about the rules as much.

These people are considered “sensitive”.  When one person is sensitive to these types of actions they can easily become overly cautious about how they treat other people.  They most likely try to be more considerate of the people around them and more often try to think about how their actions at that point will affect the next person. People are human and they can’t always achieve these noble acts, nor will they ever always achieve it, but for the most part the hope is that by trying to be considerate and doing the right thing they can show the person next to them that having consideration for other people is necessary in our world.  In a way this single person is hoping their actions will be noticed by people who need to notice, and the actions will affect those people in such a way that they will start to think about changing the way they are toward the people they interact with.

There is a commercial where one person smiles at someone, and then that person feels better and smiles at someone else and on and on, most people probably look at something like that and think it is a bunch of bunk, but truly, positive begets positive and it gets passed on to other people.  When you start to behave this way on purpose, there comes a point when you just do it and it becomes part of your life, like a habit.  The next step could be to get to a place where other people’s actions don’t affect you at all so that you can be an example for others.
