How do you respond when confronted with an immoral situation - do you run and hide or challenge it?
With the expansive immoral activities sprinting through society today many people run and hide. What do you recommend for these situations?
Find out what you feel about it and then define yourself in the context of that situation through your thoughts, words, and actions. Always define yourself as who you chose to be and not what others say.
This is a great opportunity for self-definition and that is the only purpose of life. Therefore such opportunities are gifts to you..
While I agree that opportunities may be defined as a gift for self-expression, I often wonder why the immoral actors must continue to demand an audience for those actions. Do you think it is their way of expressing dominance?
No one is forcing you to be a part of that audience. You willingly put yourself there. Please quit blaming others for your malcontent. Look in a mirror instead of a window. You claim to be professional. Prove it through action, not word.
It depends on the nature of the immoral situation. As a rule I have learned that when it comes to other people, it's better to mind one's own business. Then there are no regrets. Too often people rush in to right a wrong or preach their morality only to find themselves in hot water. They wish they had never been involved with the turmoil. The mystics say, the essence of the way is detachment. This means I am not going to try to fix all the problems in the world. In the end, it's a waste of time. You could have been happy in your own lane.
I definitely agree on the nature of the situation. However, what if that problem is continually being forced into your lane by the immoral purveyors? Do you run and hide or confront the situation?
If it disturbs my peace of mind, I will find a way to not be disturbed or affected by it. I will have it removed or I will remove myself from involvement.
If possible, I poke fun at it. Whether or not it is, I first ask myself if it's any of my business. After all, who am I to make moral rules for other people? If it's in my realm of valid interest, I take whatever steps are necessary to correct that part of it which is, leaving the rest alone.
Bear in mind, there is a difference between morals and ethics. Morals are personal. Ethics are social. Breaches of the latter are far more likely to have an impact on your interests, but that was not the question.
It is never fun to see individuals who are burdened through immoral behavior that tears their lives apart. rather than poking fun, a truthful mentor works with the burdened individual to assist in discovering a moral path. ethics are then achieved.
Sorrow from what you consider the mistakes of others is your own burden to bear. It confers no right of unilateral intervention. There is humor in everything, by the way, though it sometimes is difficult to find. Better to laugh while you can.
mental affliction as a burden is very dangerous for the infected individual. this has led to many suicides in the society where individuals were not able to seek proper assistance in repairing themselves. with assistance many become unburdened.
There are extreme cases that are exceptions, but as a rule it's not your place to interfere uninvited with the life of another. The notion intervention is justified merely because A knows better than B is tyrannical and wrong.
As a member of AA, I understand the concept of attraction rather than promotion. I can't tell another person that they are an alcoholic. They have to accept that themselves. These people are not your burden. You are your own burden. Tend to your own.
Everyone has their own idea of what's "right" or "moral"... I would never push my morals on others. Just sayin'.
I do not "push" my morals either-but I do defend my morals through distribution of truth. the bias resides with those who want to push immoral on others. the question is how do you respond when confronted with an immoral situation - I defend morals
Taburkett= Why do you feel the need to defend your morals? Your morals are not being threatened in any way. People want the right to choose their own morals and could care less about winning over yours. How do you defend & distribute simultaneous
It depends on whether you are talking about something immoral or illegal.
Those involved may have different morals than I do and if what they are doing is a matter of opinion I keep mine to myself.
If it is something illegal then I look at whether it is a victimless crime IE; drugs or prostitution or something of that ilk where everyone involved has free will.
If it is a crime with a victim I report it accordingly.
To get any deeper answer you would need to state what the act/s is that you are referring to.
