Choose the path that leads to life

in Proof of Brain4 months ago (edited)

Making wise decisions is one of the underrated things at the moment. To be fair, it doesn't cost anything to make a wise decision. As far as you give it a deep thought, even when the options you have are not favourable, you would be able to pick a lesser evil.

You might wonder why many people out there are not making wise decisions...

Very often, we see people who choose a path that leads to death, when there is one that leads to life. From the type of food, they eat to their sleeping routine down to more serious instances like their lifestyle, spending habit and whatnot. By mere looking at them, you will be reassured that what they do can only lead to regret. Yet they go on to do the same.

Nowadays, when you catch a criminal, they claim to be stealing because of poverty or unemployment. If you give them an audience, they will go on to tell cock and bull stories of how they grew up in a poor family and how they tried every option before deciding to take up arms and steal from others.

Guess what? People will start showing pity towards such criminals.

I guess you've never been robbed at gunpoint. Maybe your e-wallets are always safe and you've never been hacked so you don't know how it feels to lose everything you own within the twinkle of an eye. If you've had a slight experience of losing your valuables to these criminals, you will give that sentimental pity a darn rest.

For the record, not everyone who grew up poor commits crime. They claim not to have a choice, but there is always a choice. Do recall that criminals do not stick to one crime. They get more high-spirited after each crime and they go on to do more of it. The least they can do is to take responsibility for their action when they are caught, not plead for pity.

Every good or bad result starts from the choices we make.

People who have done their share of making wrong decisions can tell you of the repercussions. If you are thinking of doing something that might lead to regret, I suggest you stop this instant. Simply breathing and staying alive can feel like a nightmare for those that are making unwise decisions.

That's the fact.

while we should always consider when to put out pity to other person. always looks for clear evidence of people we want to give our pity.

People usually have a lot of choice, at least they can tell the truth ask for help and not stealing.

Sure... that's it.

They can ask for help or do other stuff. Stealing is just not the way. It becomes ludicrous when you see them stealing on several occasions only to claim that it was due to temptation.

First attempt usually leads to more attempts. No need to pity such people.

"We may not have control of our circumstances, but we have control of our decisions." This is hardly the reality, because the factors around the circumstances rarely gives them a chance.

People who finds their self in awful circumstances that's not just a poor background but maybe societal discrimination will find it extremely hard to go by with life peacefully. Actions like that have psychological effect on people and make them resort to defensive actions which will be offensive to the same community.

There's no valid justification for stealing from people, it is an entirely bad idea to resort to, but sometimes. The community has a hand in breeding such crimes.

Yeah... The community have a part to place. To be more blunt, everyone have a part to play because there are people that have more than enough to the extent that some of what they have goes to waste, yet they don't consider assisting those around them.

This can trigger those around to consider taking what they needed forcefully.

But, by the end of it all, it causes more harm than good to the person that goes for stealing as a last resort. Life is tough for everyone. We all have our pain. Heheh.

Like you rightly pointed out, the choice we make is in our hands.

You're right there,Someone who choose to do bad cannot play victim. There's always a window for a better choice.

And besides, Nobody deserve to be robbed off his earn resources.

I'm just trying to put the spotlight on another place that's not much seen, we should always try look out our environment, there's alot we can do if we pay attention close enough

Yeah Man... Attention is needed.

We may not have it all. I don't even have all I need, but I can always help someone else who is in a more precarious situation.

That's how we all will be able to provide morale boost for those around us.

Sure thing. Thanks for the piece☺️

Life is a choice, our decision to become good or bad lies in our hands and for every decision we make, there is a consequence for it.

However no one has an excuse for commiting crime even in the presence of God.

Thank you for sharing!

Yeah... We all are entitled to make our choice. Sad to see many making unwise Decision at all times.

The repercussion comes like a thief in the night, yet they always do it. Hehe

Happy Weekend to you and everyone over there
