"To ourself ? to the others ? Both i would say , cause if you do good for others you sure doing good for you "
yet the good that u say u do, can be someone elses bad that they speak of...
eg. someone keeps asking to borough money...u then decide not to give that person anymore, in that they should learn how to budget and save their money...and then that person look on u as bad...because in their eyes, they're going to pay u back anyways, so whats the big deal?
eg. ur country is not running to well...another country decides to help by sending rice grain and selling them cheaper then the local rice...to that country they are doing good coz they are providing something that people can afford...yet to the locals in ur country, it is contrary...because the farmer looses and ultimately sucking the wealth/pontential wealth from that country...crippling it to be dependant...
for in reality going left or right, will lead towards the same places...the earth/world is round...naturaly
if u do the wrongs in life, its going to come with casualites, and consiquences...and if u do the right in life...it will come with casualties and consiquences...check the history of Leaders who stood for the right compared to the leaders who were wicked...check Maclom...check Esco bar...check Norega...check Mumia
In no way does this suggest that there the same...yet the point is even if u do right be prepared for the consiquence that a bad deed would recieve...
but does this change whats wrong and whats right?
in like manner our spirit, the back bone of our feelings, our character shouldn't change...from u set it to the right...not because of a condition...but naturaly for what it is...right...
when u check it like that...the injustice, corruption won't phase u...coz u know ur part, and u will continue to do it...coz its right...
whatever people won't to call it..."....Redemption"...if u have the sense for the better, don't suppress it express it...naturaly
right now, on the streets...u look at a 'dude' to long...'dude' quick fi 'peppah u'...quick to do u harm, for a stare...but them never check "them and those" who do them worse than a stare...the very same people who made them and their whole community grow up poor, ina environment of violence and drugs...
why, coz 'dude' nah check di right from the first...
u zi weh mi a deal wid, roots?
