“We are our choices.”
~ Jean-Paul Sartre
This past month or so, I have been struggling with a choice. But today I don’t want to talk about my choice, it is still too personal, and really I do know the answer. I just don’t know if I’m a good enough person to do the right thing.
But on the topic of doing the right thing, recently (and it happened too many times before) I have seen so many choices made on Plurk and Facebook, many of them really negatively affecting others. So I’m wondering, am I, who also need to make a choice, am I in the position to judge people for those choices?
I know the saying, don’t judge someone until you have walked in their shoes. Even if you had a life from hell, does that give you the right to hack other people’s accounts? Does that give you the right to present yourself as something that you are not? Does this give you the right to hurt other people? When does it become pure spite? When am I allowed to judge?
This blog is a little all over the place, and does not really have a “take from” as Cao would have said. It’s just thoughts and a wish that people will become better at being good. And that brings me to Ghandi’s saying: Be the change you want to see in the world.
Yeah, the thing I was talking about in the first line.. was never a choice really, I always knew what to do.
