Something to ponder

There is no such thing as a good person or a bad person; simply choices and actions that lead us in different directions.

  1. ...but there are people that make more better choice and people that make more worse choices

    After Reading "Keep your hands to YOURSELF" I think that anyway.

  2. Also on a happier note, I LOVE your picture at the top. Those flowers are lovely.

  3. Megan, thanks so much for your comments. I love these flowers too - they bloom in early spring right in front of my house and I *think* they are called columbine.

    The quote above was in my email box (some daily inspiration thing I signed up for) and it really struck me PRECISELY because of the issue I wrote about in "Keep your hands to YOURSELF." He is such a very bad man and I can't quite reconcile the quote with what I really feel (which is that he should burn in hell for all eternity - and I don't even believe in hell but I think he should burn nonetheless). I do believe that we *all* make good and bad choices but there are some choices that are sooooo bad I have to wonder if the person is just rotten inside. Especially when it comes to hurting children and animals - to me that is as close to evil as I can imagine.

  4. I agree...kind of. I mean, are you decisions not conscious? So...couldn't you consciously pick a "better" decision that would lead you to become a better person versus one that isn't as "good?" .....

    (I have no idea. I confuse myself sometimes)

  5. Jessica, I do think we are (or should be) conscious of the decisions we make. However, there is a nifty little trick some people can use called DENIAL (and I ain't talkin' about the river in Egypt) which allows a person to convince himself that the bad decision he is making "isn't really that bad"...OR, and these people are really scary to me, they just don't give a shit. They *know* the difference between right and wrong but that's someone else's problem, not theirs.

    I confuse myself sometimes, too. I like for things to be black or white, good or bad...it just doesn't work that way, does it? *sigh*
