Your Sacred Values/Your Virtues
« on: April 10, 2013, 02:34:28 am »
So I was thinking.  Even without a religious basis, most people hold a core set of principals that are almost always unyielding.  Then I thought I could make a thread about what you hold most dear in your personal ethos.

For me, there's a few things:

  • Trust - We all have our secrets.  If someone spills something personal to you, take that as an indicator that their trust in you is strong.  Never betray that trust at all costs.
  • Tenacity - Keep pushing even through the hardest times.
  • Forgiveness - Complete monsters in our society are rare, I think.  Most transgressions against you are worth letting go.

Okay, so I can't think of any more virtues off the top of my head. The point is, this thread is all about listing and/or explaining the values that you hold most dear.

Honesty - There is no reason to hide who you are from the world. It's the easiest way to learn who accepts you for you, and who doesn't.
Loyalty - Stand by your friends and family, even if they're idiots sometimes. Be there to help them pick up the pieces once they've hit rock bottom; true friends will do the same for you.
Exploration/Discovery - Learn something, go somewhere, or try something new every day. Life is to short to spend in front of a monitor all day.
Affection - Find some way to show the important people in your life that you care about them, in a way that is undeniably "you". (mostly due to how bad I am at displaying affection at all, particularly with words)
Her3tik, you have groupies.

There are a number of ways, though my favourite is simply to take them by surprise. They're just walking down the street, minding their own business when suddenly, WHACK! Penis to the face.

My biggest would have to be objectivity. Do not be ruled by your emotions. Always be aware of them and keep them under control as much as possible.

Honesty at all times. If you screw up, admit it when asked. If asked a question, answer truthfully. You don't have to be a dick about it though.

Understanding. Try to see where another person is coming from before judgement.

Hard work. If there's something to do, do it. The time to be a slack ass isn't when theres a list of stuff to be done. And if you see someone working and you're watching zim, that makes you a dick.

Respect for yourself and others.

And honor. That's one of those things if you need defined for you, you probably don't have it.

Some have already been covered, such as honesty, truth, respect, honor, hard work, etc.

My biggest 3 though have to be:

Be Yourself - Be true to who you really are and don't try and reshape yourself to fit in a box made of the standards of others.
Loyalty- Be loyal to the people you hold dear.  Don't cheat on significant others, don't rip off family and friends, etc.  Keep the bonds that keep you going strong.
Affection - Let those close to you know you appreciate them. Though don't let your emotions 100% rule you, don't be afraid to show them either.

Don't cause negative emotions unless necessary. So don't be rude, don't kick animals, etc. Also stay positive.

Do as you will, but don't prevent anyone else from doing as they will.

In essence, my main rule is thus: you may do as you please, so long as you do no harm to others in the process.  Harm, of course, being anything that negatively affect's a person's life or quality thereof, especially infringing on their rights.

Honor, Family and Mercy.

Be Honorable to those who you come to know.
Treasure Family above all others.
Offer Mercy to those you meet on the battlefield, but be merciless if they threaten you or your Family.  There is no dishonor in slaying those that would do you and yours harm.
There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.

Self indulgence. It relaxes you, and make you easier to be around.
