And to sum it all up


Girls are generally money minded… rich guys are generally jerks… guys will generally go for younger hotter chicks… married men are generally horny… those topics have been hotly debated in AZAIG lately. For a while, I thought I have turned AZAIG into a forum or something. The initiating entry even breached the century comments count! Not that I am complaining. In fact, I am absolutely thrilled and long may it continue.

Anyway, I’ve said earlier that I like Helen’s comment best, but another comment came in later and I must say, blogger ‘me’ said it all in one simple phrase….

“… yes, women do it too… the statistic is just still not as many as the men”

She was referring to the how thrill and excitement of ‘something new’ will drive men into forgetting about his responsibility and plunging his head (the dick version) into some new “hole”. And she is right in admitting that women do it too, infidelity I mean, not plunging “head” into a certain “hole”. But of course, like she said, just that the statistics point more towards guys as being the perpetrators.

Being a member of the male species, I’ll admit that is true.

Similarly, the debate about all girls being money minded can be concluded in that manner. Some female readers have pointed out that men can be equally materialistic. I will not deny that but well, if I may borrow the phrase by ‘me’…

“… yes, men do it too… the statistic is just still not as many as the women”

Fair?

In life… we usually know what is wrong and what is right. Most of us are born with the instinct to do the right thing, ethical right things I mean. That is called knowledge, gained through our understanding about life. When being asked whether we will do the wrong thing, our knowledge will tell us to deny it… to say no. It’s our natural response.

With knowledge, we are then being put in situation whether we need to do the right or the wrong thing. This discerning knowledge allows us to know what to choose between wrong or right. This is called wisdom.

But… admitting that we have our weaknesses and limitations, that we are vulnerable to temptations, that we may land our ass in the dark side one day… admitting that wisdom may fail us despite having the right knowledge… that is called… maturity.

May you have a blue-less Monday.

Jemima said...

Don't forget "courage".

Happy Monday!

Cirnelle said...

But will one day, the right thing becomes hazy and blurred that it then becomes difficult to distinguish it from the wrong? Then wisdom spirals down to complete confusion.

Blue-less Monday is an unattainable paradox.

jaezrel said...

Tine said...

Argh, too "cheem" for my Monday morning, which I deemed is going to be blue regardless.

Gallivanter said...

Nice one, let's discuss the histrionics even further this weekend at the Blogger Booze. You coming right? :-)

Helen said...

Must debate whether the rights and wrongs should be decided by the individual (under the guise of conscience), or subscribe to a higher authority? Yeah, dun want to say it... like you say, the big man.

Or maybe more easily acceptable to the masses (plenty of atheists u know), the LAW. (of the country lar)
