I constantly advise my kids to be the 'bigger person'. Is this good advice?
It's a war between the 'should' and the 'should not'... keep it under control or get mad don't keep it in; be diplomatic or be honest; give in or get satisfaction. It could mean we lose in the end.
There are times I can't apply the same, when I don't want to be objective, when I don't want to play fair, when I don't want to stay calm.
Letting ones' conscience over-rule you takes something out of one. Is having too much of a conscience a good thing? Is being right and doing right, one and the same or different?
Sometimes I think that conscience makes me weak.
