I don’t know about you, but when deciding between right and wrong, I don’t see much of a choice. Who would deliberately want to go for a wrong decision? Yeah, we’ve done a couple of mistakes. Oftentimes, we’ve made wrong decisions. And believe me, I know the feeling, I’ve been there (and back. And there and back, and there and back.. you get the idea). But I’m sure there are reasons why we did those. There are things that just cannot be avoided. .
A more difficult choice is to choose between right.. and good. Isn’t that the same? Well, for me, not really. Right now, the line that separates right from wrong is so thin, so thin that it is almost impossible to know what is right or wrong. But it’s easy to decide what is good and what’s not, right? A good example is personal happiness. Choosing to be happy is, undoubtedly, a noble deed. But it’s not always right, right? Everybody deserves to be happy. But being happy beyond the grasp of what is right is somehow discomforting. It’s not being happy at all. And It’s just not worth it.
There’s nothing more rewarding than being happy AND being right at the same time. It doesn’t get better than that. Again, I am not claiming that I always do the right thing. I have so many stupid decisions in my life. But that won’t stop me from believing , or choosing, to do the right thing. And neither should anyone.
I don’t believe that choosing the right thing does not guarantee happiness. It does. It’s just a matter of time.
