Infidelity

What is for the greater good? Justice, Temperance, Wisdom and Courage are. Hence, infidelity, which is acting without temperance, wisdom nor justice, is bad for one’s character. It is giving into one’s primal instinct and letting go of reason which is shameful — a lack of self-respect to oneself and to others involved.


As a witness of any injustice, standing up to that injustice, which requires courage, is an opportunity to express one’s virtue. It goes without saying that complicity in such action is also wrong and degrades any person involved.


As Elie Wiesel said:


"Whoever listens to a witness, becomes a witness."

"Action Is the Only Remedy to Indifference."

and


"We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented."

So I ask myself: Do I want to live a life as a good person — finding meaning in the way I act? Or do I prefer a life of fleeting pleasure, degrading myself, by giving into shameful actions — depriving myself of true purpose and meaning?


Do you want to live a life for the greater good or is your ego making you too proud to see where your wrongdoings are?
