"Moral"of the story

"If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything."
True! Principles guide us in moving ahead towards our goals.

Initially I was not sure what I want from my life. And nothing surprising, I am still not sure about it. But yeah, I know,what I don't want in my life. There is a long list of those things...aaah
Success at work, happiness and peace are all subjective. Momentary elements.

My beliefs are very strong about certain things. And I know no matter what happens I will not change them at any cost. Some of my friends find this a little odd because they say beliefs change with time. I agree with them to some extent but still cannot completely adhere with them.

To me forgiveness is one of the greatest virtues on earth. More than honesty.

I have seen that sometimes out of contempt we say many things to others, sometimes silently say them but it always pinches deep down and then its like...ohh forget it..its ok...!

But some people are vindictive...they keep malice till the score is settled....such behaviour is detestable.

World would be such a nice place if there was all goodness around...which is so not possible.

I often complain about people, changing nature and oddities of life. But I am happy that I am a part of it. My flaws are there as well. A little bit of harmless manipulation, most of us indulge in that.

Hypocrysiy isn't it that the same done by others I criticise and the same done by me eg..I call it mind games or something more that sounds like a jargon:(
I need to change myself on these lines...hmmmm

Well, do morals play an imp. part in our lives?
We all have heard fables and stories from grandmas, in kindergartens which tell us do this and you will be admired, or do that and you will be happy...yeah and we grow up and do things which are not in accordance to the morals(some of the times) ....
a different slice of life altogether..haa

Agree at this point that forgiveness is the greatest virtues on this earth, but I hope you will also agree at this point that every action has its own limits, own barriers. One cannot be completely forgiven, or one cannot forgive everytime, because if one tries at this act, that person will become more than just a normal human being. May be what I am writing upon doesn't fits in your "Morals" of life, and I totally and completely appreciate it, because every individual holds a different policy. Ya, the world will become heaven when everything would be forgiven and people will become all good.
But then, the position may become more monotous, people will start taking everybody forgranted, as they will estasblish a belief of forgiven on every single misdeeds(even if they are not meant to be forgiven). So dear, I personally feel, lets leave few people who are not so good to everyone, so that the world will respect the goodness around the. Atleast, their would be chances of less mishappenings.
Pata nahin, how much this content is relevant regarding the comment on the ""Moral" of the Story", but atleast I have this oppurtunity to say what I feel like. Thank you for giving me this space for sharing my views.
Doing a great job,
God Bless,

Well, if you already know what don't want in your life you've got half the work done... everything else that comes along is profit.
Just don't over-rationalize everything. It's all in the details...
Enjoy yourself!

I can so very much relate to your thoughts...Time and again I seem to be caught in a similar dilemna but u know what..probably the best way out is to trust ur instincts and act accordingly...its often said that instincts are the purest form of self-suggestion as they are generated in the heart...the moment these move on from the heart to mind they become corrupt..dunno if these words are making any sense to you but do i ur instincts a whole-hearted try...
