Have you ever stolen anything? Pens, towels from a hotel,
neighbor's newspapers? Come clean!
One of Paul E.'s hubs now and again, but otherwise no.
I can honestly say, I have never stolen anything, not even as a child. I have a very strong sense of guilt, which would make me obsess about what I had done, and I would have to return what I had stolen, even if it got me into trouble.
Yes, when I was very young (about four), I took a toy from the neighbors yard. I was overcome with guilt! Funny, there are a lot of things I have forgotten over the years, but I have never forgotten that. Stealing, you just don't do it.
perhaps.... though some would not consider it stealing... more like cheating death on more than one occasion. Stealing my life back is the thing I have stolen.
(Now that I've admitted it, I hope IT doesn't come for me with a vengence anytime soon)
A box of gold stars from the hardware store when I was 5. I was entranced by them and wanted to use them to play school. I was with my dad and when he discovered it,(after telling me no, he would NOT buy the box), he marched me back into the store to face the owner and 'fess up. Very humiliating which is a good lesson.
My (rich) accountant and his five kids were at a party at my house when my young son told me he had been showing his (sharp) pocket knife to the kids and now it was missing. I told my accountant because of the issues with a sharp knife among kids etc etc. He did not look at all surprised and just called his smallest cutest 6 year old daughter over and searched her. He found the knife inside her knickers (pants) clutched tightly between her legs. Apparently she was a teeny kleptomaniac !
Have you ever downloaded a Song without paying for it,
have you ever tried to start a Business but talked yourself out of it.
I say this because if you don't try to achieve beyond your Dreams then you have actually stole from your future and any person that may have benefited from your achievements. When you expand the Universe expands for everyone.
