Enough about cheating!

    All this talk about cheating is bothering me (I know, if I don't like it, don't read it). bla bla bla.

    I see it this way: We're all just trying to figure out life. And it can get cloudy and confussing sometimes. Our grasp of right and wrong can get blurred, and we can make mistakes.

    It's nice to say "Cheating is wrong, I would never do it". But the truth is, things are way more complicated than that. And people make mistakes. And that's OK.

    So can we please stop passing judgement on each other for the ways that we are just trying figure out our lives? It's seems to me this argument is futile. It can all be a painful experience.

    And the "holier than thou" attitude going around is not supportive to anybody who's been through this. If you haven't been through it, you don't know what it feels like. And if you haven't been through it, it all nice to say "I would never do it". But, I'm sure lots of people who have cheated, or been cheated on have also said "I'll never do it, It'll never happen to me".

    My 0.02 cents.

    Because it's so extremely thrilling for some to have their "name" attached to something.

    I got caught cheating once in like grade 6. Our history teached quized us on the same section of each unit, so 10 min b4 class me and a couple friends would each write all the answers on a little piece of paper and just set it on our laps.

    During the test my he saw me looking down at my lap a couple times and I knew I was busted. So what did I do? Why I ate and swallowed thew cheat sheet. I still got in shit though....tooo funny.

    I have been cheated on more than once.
    I have never been the one cheating.
    Don't assume we would all do it.
    My conscience is clear and clouds are little more than an excuse for making the wrong choice.

    I understand where you're coming from, ming.

    strong arguments could be made for many sides, but in the end, it seems as if there is no right resolution. you could make that argument with any touchy social issue. we all don't go around intentionally trying to hurt others, but sometimes circumstances bounce us into new and unpredictable directions.

    I think all we can do is choose our battles and do our best to win them.

    um, hope that makes sense! [​IMG]

    I had this girl in kindergarten that used to call me her boyfriend. Then I got caught looking at another girls underwear in the coat room at the back of class.

    She still won't talk to me!
