At 27 years old, I’d like to think I have a pretty good grasp on right from wrong but was recently reminded that there is indeed, a grey area when it comes to morality.
Not long ago, I found myself being faced with a challenge of principle… and the question was whether or not it was down to me to get involved in the name of all that is good… or to let the situation run it’s course and keep quiet (being that I wasn’t directly involved.) What did I do? Thinking I had a good view from up on my moral high-ground… I assumed the hero role and climbed down to the rescue, not realising that nobody wanted to be saved.
In complete self-deprecating honesty, I was shocked when I wasn’t celebrated for what I had done.. In fact, conversely I found myself instead receiving a pretty annoyed reception party at my coronation. Wasn’t I the knight in shining armour here? Hadn’t I done something good??
Well, maybe.. but mostly not and that’s ok. Sometimes, right from wrong isn’t always clear and sometimes we mess up in the void between the two…
Maybe accepting the lessons you learn from the mistakes is the best way to move forward.
