The story of morality and values-Day 7 of WP challenge

“You have no morals or values and I like her because she has those”.

She stood their laughing, not because it was amusing, but because it seemed ridiculous that he was saying this when he had already crossed that immoral line. How does getting involved with your girl friend’s, friend who is married and has a child be called moral.

How does spending $1000 buying her a ticket so she can spend a weekend with you, be considered moral, how does she who got on the plane, leaving her child and husband, to be with you considered to be a person with values.

How is she who blatantly flirts with you, (her friend’s boy friend) while her husband is in the same room, be a person who has values.

Do you know the meaning of the word moral, she screams. “You stand there pointing your fingers at me, putting yourself on this moral pedestal, judging me for my shortcomings, when you have done the worse thing possible”.

He stands there, trying to find a response, refusing to take responsibility for his actions, somehow justifying what he has done as not being immoral. “You and she are no longer friends” he says. Once again refusing to accept why the friendship has ended.

“If this your definition of morality, I am glad I have none”, she says, turning her back and walking away from him and never looking back.

About my random musings

I am originally from South East Asia and I moved to the US about 15 years ago to follow my heart. My heart has since been broken a few times, but I continue to be on journey of trying to mend it. I could talk about running, baking or writing in a small crowd, but put me in a room full of strangers and I will be the one standing in a corner people watching. When I am not writing or running, I would be in my kitchen, flour strewn all over the kitchen counters, music playing in the background and me just rolling and folding dough, excited about what my creation will turn out to be. Besides that I love passionately, when I love, I give it my all, not always a good thing, but that is who I am. I jump both feet in and sometimes I come out with regrets but having learnt a lesson. I believe everything happens for a reason and this is my place to share bits and pieces of my life, my adventures and sometimes misadventures. Hope you enjoy reading my stories as much I enjoy sharing them with you.

    Very good Tania. Still reading the others as well. Sorry to see that you’re still hurting. The musings really are articulate and I can feel and understand your pain. I hope I never have to experience. Hang in there and hope the musings are therapeutic for your beautiful soul that was tramped on. Jim D.
