How Ethical Are You … Really?

So how is your moral code these days? Do you think you are a good person? Do you live life by a code of moral conduct or are you mostly concerned with just getting from A – C and sod everything and one in B?

Do you want to help out people in general if you can? If you see a problem arising are you an onlooker or someone at the front as a helper or a negotiator? So, tell me, tell us  – how ethical are you …. really?

Let me know below, in the comments section – thanks Rory

  1. This question needs a very honest answer. I try my best to live according to my moral code and help others. I don’t know how many people would say that they don’t! 😜

    1. True and yet the difference is whether people deliver the honest answer or just say what they think readers wish to see. [No Sadje NOT You 🙂 ]

      I have known people in my time, my father and my sister as prime examples who would say and one still does that it is soft to concern yourself with B but they would not answer that honestly if asked, they would lie.

  2. Sadje is correct ~ everyone is going to say they are ethical and blah blah blah.

    I’m going to actually be honest. I would do anything for my children. Other people? Meh, not so much. I’ll help as the mood moves me, which it doesn’t much these days. To be fair, I don’t have many extra resources to fling away at strangers. I am wary of all the con games out there. In the urban areas I frequent, it’s easy to get help; no one needs to approach ME for anything. If they do, I’m instantly suspicious.

    1. That Paula, is an excellent answer … i will help people as much as l am able, but l’ll no longer to it to the point of my own detriment. Family first as in my partner, maybe family – although that is very slim these days. Whilst l am not going to tread upon people to get to where l want to go. Life has made me very cynical. I know l am a good person at heart, and that’s fine for me.

  3. I don’t know. Can’t get much more honest than that I suppose. I have gone out of my way to help total strangers..actually more than I help my own children. The kids are prone to asking for handouts instead of trying to fix whatever their current problem is, so I have little empathy for them. I once took a stranger into my home so he could sleep and shower. I’ve worked for non-profits most of my life and tend to work in social service fields…but am I ethical? hell if I know. I try to be truthful and honest but can lie at the drop of a hat when needed. You tell me.

  4. I used to put everyone else’s needs before my own, but that didn’t make me selfless, it made me a martyr. Not a good look. I’ve learned that my needs are important too. Ben comes first, he’s a child and a child that needs extra help, then my daughters and me.
    I give money to charities and help others when I can.
    I try to support small businesses and eco-friendly companies as much as I can.
    I think I’m pretty ethical. I try to be kind and respectful to everyone. I am human and have bad days and bad moods just like everyone.

    1. Yes same as me really. I give money to a couple of charities one animal and one human, will help people where l can, do the environmental , trade fairly and squarely am always polite and courteous to people, l can’t think of any reason to be rude to people unnecessarily, but yes of course we all have good and bad days 🙂

    1. Hey Melanie, l have just read that very nicely done – l think the truth the real ethical truth is that we are fine, but life burns us to a crisp 🙂 We do what we do, but there are limits.

  5. I think I’m a person that holds true to her morals and ethics. I always want to help people, I like to engage people to discuss certain topics that might be taboo… But, my efforts are to break a stigma and help better educate people.
    I always believed in being kind, honest, respectful, and patient. I love seeing potential in others and try to encourage them to shoot for the moon.
    “Thank you”, “Please”, and “Your Welcome” are standards along with a warm smile to brighten someone’s day, even if I’m not at my best.
    As you know, I didn’t quite have a father figure that was all that kind, nor caring in many respects. I wanted to be the opposite of him my entire life. (Other than becoming an alcoholic like him)… I did admit to having a problem, and sought help. I believe in supporting others that struggle with addiction as well. I want to make sure that everyone I encounter knows they are not alone in any situation. Empathy goes a long way, and I know that a helping hand is always needed somewhere.

    1. Yes l also think you are a good person, with the right moral and ethical code to you Beckie. I will help others where l can. Although having been trodden on so many times now l have become very weary and wary of others – not judging people, but l tend to step more cautiously these days when extending a hand to help.
