Good or Evil?

What is good and evil? What is justice and what is VILE? What truly is the best and the worst things humanity can offer? Well there's a problem when asking such questions and that's the mere fact that morals and ethics are all so subjective.

Take for example murder. Murder is defined as the unlawful killing of a person but in every day language, murder is killing someone for an unjust reason. The legality of any of these things doesn't matter because it is still wrong or passable, and the question being answered is "What is good and evil?" It seems as though murder is clear cut, it's wrong. Any form of killing is wrong. But what about someone with a disability who murdered, are they evil? What about someone who was young and pressured by their parent, or was raised in such a hostile environment, are they evil? What about a hit man trying to afford enough to eat is he or she evil? what if it was someone killing for equality? Is it still murder if it was an accident? Is it murder to send someone to death even if they truly did despicable and horrible things? Is it murder even if it's a fetus? I have named a few scenarios and you may all have answers to each one of them. But you can be certain that everyone has a different set of answers given different scenarios. Let's expand on the idea of the death penalty. Is it good or evil to kill someone even if that someone did very evil things themselves? There is no answer; It depends on who you are. One side says it's murder because killing anyone who is defenseless is wrong. The other side feels like the only justice given to this culprit is by giving them the same treatment as they did to others. Both sides have reasons that are understandable but neither side is objectively and undoubtedly true because there is nothing so strong and above us that can say it is good or evil.

Many people try to act high and mighty saying that because they have a religion, they have a better authority of good and evil. They say that when someone who is secular or Atheistic has an idea it's not objective so it's not important. This is a lazy way of dismissing someone who has a different opinion than the religious. However no religion ever will have all the answers and even if they did, the person who holds this belief has as much ground as an Atheist because the secular and the religious both have the same authority but different mind sets. I do not suggest learning about morality in a bible because you won't get all the answers.

Many people take the ideas of their parents, friends, or leaders, to try and see what is good and evil. This however still is not helpful when trying to find out what is good and evil. One mind set and view on life doesn't work in all ways and to everyone. With so many people in this world having one mindset will never appease everyone and we will never find one moral code that everyone can agree on. Taking moral codes from others also makes you less human, as people we are meant to be learning and creating ideas. People can not stick to the same thing everyone agrees with because it is only natural to have someone find a flaw in any moral code. And it is best for this to happen because that is our human nature.

So what is good and what is evil? Where is the answer? Who holds this answer? Well... You. You, my reader, hold the answer. You know what is good and evil because nothing is good and evil outside you. This may scare you because nothing is real now. Now anyone and everyone has a moral code. Now even the dictators have a say in their own way of good and evil. But even if it's unsettling, good and evil don't exist in our plane of reality they exist in you, and in me. People, humans, us, we created morality and we slowly built it up. We all created this abstract concept of good and evil which makes us so special and different from animals. So why do our ancient ancestors make our moral codes? Reader, you are the creator of morality alongside everyone else. So reader, choose wisely because society will still have it's revoltion against your ideas. To me, in some scenarios, it could be called for! But who am I to tell you about morality when morality is abstract?
What is (romantic) love?

The importance of this question is very significant. What TRULY is love? Well anything I say is my own personnel opinion but let me try and give you an idea. Even though I experience love and "know" what it feels like, it's still a very complex issue. Love is not a constant feeling of happiness and perfection. Love needs as much separation as it needs closeness. Love needs romance but play. And you must give up, stress, and sacrifice, to love. love is a balance. You need independence, space, and friendliness because that's what makes a relationship strong and not too close. You need each other, a lot of time together, and romance, to make the relationship work. A relationship is a dance between balancing these opposites for it to work with you and them.

Lovers need to be independent from each other to be close. The more dependent you are with one another the less you feel like it's love and the more you feel like it's a roommate that you need for yourself to sustain. Love does not mean to incarcerate your lover and make it impossible for them to realistically leave. Many marriages end up too dependent of each other causing the two lovers to slowly lose interest. Trying to keep our lover to ourselves, instead of having full faith in them, and making them a prisoner in our war of love, is a very big problem in relationships. If you think your lover will leave, you must talk to them or must stop dating them. If you can manage to make you and your lover independent, you will feel much more prouder that this person still, after everything, wants to be with you.

Lovers need their space. This might sound very odd but it's true. Let me put it this way: The space between a hug makes it feel nice. You don't want to be smooshed together too tightly but you still want to feel contact. Just like my analogy, you need time off as much as you need time together; You need time by yourself to truly feel the effects of being together. But too much space and you lose connection and with too little space you get annoyed. You need that space to feel the most comfort, but you need to be together to feel. That's why love is so confusing because it relies on balancing and opposites mixing.

Lovers need to be happy and love themselves to love someone else and be loved. Both sides must be happy with themselves, feel good and proud of their own work, and feel happy in their own skin, before being able to feel love. It's totally reasonable to start feeling better about yourself because of your lover. But in the end of the day you will not be able to love if you can't love yourself.

Lovers must remain true to themselves and not change themselves for each other. Instead, lovers must separate and find someone else if they are not compatible with who the other person is. Lovers should NEVER change each other, or themselves, to force it to work. If the puzzle piece doesn't fit, it won't fit no matter how much you push it in. This doesn't mean you have to find the perfect match, there is no such thing as the perfect match, this just means that you must forgive the small things, and break up for the big problems. If something is a deal breaker you should never try to change it if it's a part of them.

Lovers must be open to each other. They must talk to each other about all things. Maybe one side wants to have more or less sex, or has kinks. Maybe one side feels like things are too close. Maybe one side feels like things are going too fast or too slow. The point is: a relationship can't work, and won't work, if the two sides are to scared of being abnormal to talk to each other about fundamental and little things. Not talking to each other is the big cause of cheating.

Lovers can't feel awkward or weird while being together. If something feels weird when you're with them, then something's up. It's true that you might have butterflies in your stomach at first, but after a while of feeling too distant and weird, something's the matter.

Lovers must understand that love is not perfect and they will never find the perfect person. In love there will always be misunderstanding, difference, and imperfection. Little things that your lover does might annoy you, there will be fights, there will be strife, there will be problems; but love is understanding someone and being there for someone. It is truly feeling and understanding as much as you can to another person even though it may not always happen. You do this because of the immense emotions you feel towards them.

Lovers must expect to gain some things and have some sacrifices be made for them but more importantly, must expect themselves to be selfless and give as much to their partner. Giving to your lover and having to deal with many things is frustrating at the least. But lovers need to do this in order to make sure that their relationship remains strong. No side should have too much or too little. This is why both side's must try as hard as possible to give. They'll receive because both side's must do this.

Love is a tricky thing. No relationship will exist without frustration and problems but love is very rewarding, in all senses. Love gives you happiness, wholeness, tenderness, pleasure, and fulfillment, even if it also take's a lot.

Hey there 3wly, i'm actually the same person as katherine-smiley-face. I was wondering if I had to write stories by giving comments to other writers or if I can just critique visual arts.
