Describe your life philosophy

ā€‹I am an idealist at the core, but I generally have a cynical outlook.  I do not believe that everyone is “good at heart,” nor do I excuse people’s mistakes with ignorance.  The 21st century offers limitless technology and through that, unprecedented access to acquiring knowledge and new skills.  Though exceptions do prove the rule, I accept that 95% of the global population has chosen to remain uninformed and to disregard their consciences.  

Selfishness is what motivates people and is the hardest vice to overcome, though it can be a tool in its own way.   However, like with all tools, it is easier to use it for evil than for good.  For me, the purpose of life is to prove to yourself that no matter how frustrated or angry or disgusted or bitter you can become about everything, your goodness will survive despite all obstacles.  Everyone makes mistakes, but the wise person learns from those mistakes. Conquering your fears by learning how to confront them is one of life’s most important lessons. No temptations will make you succumb to being less than you are.  

What is your life philosophy?

    Try to do the right thing and revise what that is according to ongoing life experience. šŸ™‚

      I agree, but I’d like to note that it is part of absolute relativity to find your own definition of what feels right according to how you feel at the time. Changing beliefs are another story, but as long as you stand up for your truths and assert that they are true, no matter what anyone says or believes, you can go through life with a strong mindset and unshakable principles.
