The sad truth is, that no matter how well meaning and conscientiuos a person is (truly decent as opposed to one who simply CALLS themself "GOOD"), people (ourselves included) are all in competition with each other. That's why a conscience is so important, true peace of mind comes from having a clear conscience because of being a truly righteous person, not a SELF-righteous person. Self-righteous people live their lives frantically trying to redeem their conscience and become sad people with lonely hearts. The sad fact of life is that the less you effect life, the more it will effect you. Everybody will agree with that statement because it is true, but the people that will be happiest to hear it are the one's whom it exonerates (takes their guilt away). You see, they are HAPPY to hear that they don't have to accept blame for all the mind games they play on other people (they want you to blame "LIFE", not them). Get to know yourself and accept who you REALLY are. Don't fall for what OTHER people call wisdom, be yourself and be free.
