Right or Wrong?

on

In our daily lives how many times we struggle to find if something is right or wrong right? But do you think right and wrongs can be defined? I strongly feel it to be a myth or a cliche. It’s impossible to conclude something to be right or wrong. One of the variables which substantially change equation is the situation or a context. For example, you may say that killing another person is wrong, but what if this person is trying to harm you? Now killing this person might become β€˜right’. I know it’s an extreme example but just to make a point.


In my opinion, these rights and wrongs are to be specified in percentages, and there can not be a 100%. The verdict also depends on the place, culture, mood, condition and so many things. I think we simply hurt ourselves by trying to fit one size to all.

Now the important question, does it mean that one does not worry about rights and wrongs? Wrong! You need to worry. But you must build a capability to accept or reject things instead saying right or wrong. Here you can even reject the so called right and accept the wrong. You should create an ability to act rationally. You must be able to reason a given situation. Your reasons should unbiased and be able to cross examined by yourself. You should be able to analyze the issue from 3rd person view. You should be able to accept defeat. Be prepared to appreciate your adversary. Only then you have elevated yourself as the master of your domain. Once you are there, right or wrongs are not your concern. There is an excellent chance that your path is the best one for you. You will have finite decisions in your favor!

  2. I agree. What’s right for me my not be right for you based on your experiences, beliefs, knowledge or personal reason. It’s a subjective issue. The most important thing is to know everyone is right from thier own perspective. So many conflicts occur just to prove that I am right and you are wrong. It’s about getting the bigger picture.

      Very true Pooja, we all are caught up in fight for “I am right” “You are wrong” based on “My” perspective. Yes trying to start outside and analyzing tells you often different story…

      True, but most of the people think of “moral reasoning” as “moral” from the that “book”. πŸ˜€ Moral has to come from within .. πŸ™‚
      Thank you very much your comment and appreciation.

  7. Very thought provoking post. I think Right and Wrong as in judgment is of no value in itself. It all comes down to perspectives. It becomes important to really see what is our true role in the situation – as you rightly point out – accept whatever comes up.

    I tend to be literal, and therefore, tend to think in absolute terms when it comes to right and wrong. But I am not close minded. I understand your perspective and see the truth in it. But there is still that small voice telling me that not everything is relative. Right? Or wrong? 😊

    True. We have to stop seeing things in black and white; adding grey may just be what the world needs.

    This post is full of wisdom. The problem with humanity is that we prefer to remain at the level of labeling things instead of transcending all these false concepts and become enlightened, that state in which the question of right and wrong does not arise as you have elaborated.

  12. This made me think a lot about what I have done in the past and what I will do in the future. But I think right and wrong depends on the situation, like you said!
