    How do you make the right choice when you find yourself  in a gray area between right and wrong?

    Have you ever found yourself in situation where right and wrong seemed to blend together? How does one make the best choice in this kind of situation? Even after seeking help to resolve it, you still end up in that gray area. Has this ever happened to you.

    There is no grey area, something is right or wrong, they are absolutes, you can't be slightly wrong, no more than a woman can be slightly pregnant, she is or she isn't.  Implying a grey area is for people who are looking for an excuse for their actions.

      Interesting. As I understand this answer, and I see the point, it cannot be interesting. It is either wrong or right. Well then it must be wrong.

      O.K. We use an example; A woman carrying her unborn child are in the hospital. They unborn and woman are both at risk of loosing their life. Only one can live, so tell me which one will you choose to live. Now, do you still think it's clear?

      No, it isn't clear, the medical team will do all they can to save both lives. It is not wrong to make a decission to save the life of the more viable of the two parties. We could go around in circles all day what if examples. ED you make no sense.

      if taken in the context it is written this is a valid question/
      and   2nd part- so what is new?

      Then your example of the dying mother and child is irrelevent, and as I said, we can go around in circles all day inventing what if scenarios. In a hospital what I think is irelevent, it is up to the medical team.

      Mick S-  Oh, now it's irrelevent. How convenient for you.

      Gracenus,  you are talking like book with no pages. I said your example was irelevent, as are all, what if, examples.

    I have found that most "gray" areas are self-inflicted, in that, we create them ourselves so we don't have to choice the option we know is right simply because it may be the more difficult choice or the one we don't personally want. Simply because we are uncomfortable with a choice does not mean there is not a right and wrong answer.

      Mitch- I believe you may have brought up a good point. It may be most of the time self-inflicted. But not always self-inflicted. Many thanks.

      Except when there is a question of preference, such as chocolate or vanilla, I don't think there is an issue of any importantance that doesn't have a definitive right and wrong...btw, dark chocolate is the right answer smile
