I Try To Do What Is Right

Good Faith/Sincerity might not be enough anymore. 491 People

    I Always Try...

    Today, my daughter asked me how can I be sure that what I do is right. I said I never really know 100% for sure and I still don’t know. Because there are things we simply don't know. I always try to do the best I can. I have followed my instinct and I always have faith. Yes...

    Right

    I try to do what is right through my eyes. I do my best to respect what others believe, but in the end it has to come down to what i believe. I only have one life to live, and i don't plan to waste it.

    I will continue to do what is right.

    Because I believe it is what God wants me to do.

    We all fall short of doing what is right.

    I'm pretty good at admitting how frequently I make bad choices. For some reason, a little anonymity makes it a tad easier. Hmmmm. . . . now is that a correct choice? :)

    Unless Wrong's More Seductive . . .

    . . . I generally do try to do what's right! But what's "right" anyway? Isn't it really all relative? Here's an example: It's the law in our state to wear a seatbelt while driving. I am teaching my 17yr old how to drive & cannot reach the steering wheel from the psgr seat w...

    More People Than You Think

    Seems obvious, but it's not always easy. In fact, it's a challenge sometimes. It's a morality most of us wish was natural or automatic, you know, good feels right, but too many times we stray down a polar opposite path. Why? Because the wrong option is more exciting...

    And in the process people get offended.

    Blame it on my personality or my serious distaste for the status quo. You can have the blue tights, red cape, super powers and the "S" which "symbolizes" hope. All I need is the guts, the drive, the push, the urge and the fearlessness to step in, clear out the "brood of vipers...

    I try, but I know I'm failing.

    I fail at everything. I lack commitment, dedication, motivation. I don't value my own happiness and fulfilment enough to work hard enough. I give up and walk away. I abandon hopes and dreams when too much effort is required. Why? Who knows. Bad role models, poor discipline, just...

    The choice between right

    and wrong may not always be crystal clear. My conscience, exists. If i have the choice, i will always choose the option that is authentically me. The option that causes the least amount of harm . The option that is respectful of my independence autonomy but which upholds the...
