Daily Prompt: Morality Play

Daily Prompt Morality Play

Where do your morals come from — your family? Your faith? Your philosophical worldview? How do you deal with those who don’t share them, or derive them from a different source?

Morals have been taught through my generation of family ever since i was young. Back then, grandma with her own methods, choose to teach me through different warnings. Being in the Singaporean or so-called ‘Asian’ background, if you’ve not known, has one of the most strictest parents, brought it a very conservative nature.

“No staring”, ” “Don’t say pig”, No this and that and what nonsense. “No climbing the walls”, I guess I never would understand why I cant, and if I were to say it or do it, I’ll most likely see the cane gripped into the palm of their hands. That’s when I know ‘okay this is wrong’

Morals was built upon lessons and lessons of trials as a kid. I’ve sooner or later learnt that the more good things I do, the more rewards I’ve managed to get in return. I was annoying and irritating as a kid trying to persuade others into getting what i want, but I’ve learnt that winning the hearts of my parents by being ‘good’ was more effective than trying to whine and get what I want later in life, so that tackled the source of the problem, my morality.

Other than that, morals just came in through reading of books that helps to understand the difference of right and wrong, though sometimes i still do believe that there’s no right or wrong answers, just good and bad choices. Then again, sometimes i believe that there isn’t good and bad choices, so just follow what’s feel’s like its right at that very moment. So now i kind think it’s best to follow what works effective.

I’ve also got to admit, at first it was hard to deal with those who has a different approach to the morality that I have, but I’ve learnt, that not everyone was born in the same way or condition as I was, so their views might be totally different, and i respect that its their morals they choose to live with.

At certain times, I’ll try to give my two cents worth to see if they’re willing to improve or accept a new moral to benefit their life  but not to force them to change, so that it really benefits me.

Be Guilt Free.

I still feel like I don’t understand the people in this world half of the time. There’s a really big difference between telling the truth, being honest and sometimes just lying and being crappy at something.

Some people who succeeds meant what they say, they work hard for their job, they pay attention to details, and yet I see some people who still  slack off and demand better. Some would do a a lot of talking in front of bosses, but in the back of end, do the most crappiest job ever and smoke their way through.

The realism is that, no matter what ways someone decides to hide something, sooner or later, someone will realize, eventually. It doesn’t have to be someone else who find outs,It can be very damaging to the person itself only realizing that later.

If i were to hide and lie about something in front of my boss about what I’m supposed to hand in and provide, there’s this guilt I will always carry, even after I’ve moved on for 20 years later. This image i have made of myself will change the way I view things, and when I think it’s okay to do such things, i will tend to make more of these same lies in the future. Consciously, i might still be able to change, but unconsciously, I might not be able to tell.

If there was a contractor, who decided to skip inspection checks on the safety requirements of a construction on site, just because there was a deadline given by some high authorization government perhaps, what will happen if one day, the building didn’t manage to hold in, what if there was a loophole in between, and workers die. How is the contractor going to live with that guilt that adds on to the guilt he already made before hand.

I just want to share with the world, that even though we’re late for submission, or do not complete the work on time, it doesn’t mean we should do a crappy job and just hand it in so that it’ll be considered as complete. To be responsible to one’s self is as important as being responsible to what is given. Surely meeting the target is an objective and if time is of the constraint, but it could be very damaging for the future as well.
