We can be whoever we want to be, chose to be. Our worldviews are shaped by a number of factors but at the end of the day, we get to decide what we stand for.
Most of us declare to be good people. Good women, good men, good humans. Rarely, do we encounter people who say ” I am a piece of shit. Be careful around me”. I would actually have a tremendous amount of respect for that brand of an individual. Not because they have wholly committed themselves to be dung, but because they are honest about it.
Life is going to put to test our declarations, convictions, and morality. Who are we going to be when we are staring decision in the face? Our actions declare who we are, not our words.
