To what extent do your past "crimes" or acts of kindness influence your actions personally today?

Report as

For past crimes if you felt guilty you try not to repeat that action again with anyone else, so you try harder. Acts of kindness, you pay it forward and that is rewarding and makes you feel good about you.

Nice answer. We all should be learning from our mistakes & reflecting so that we can be better people to ourselves & those affected by us!

My past errors of judgement, mistakes and lack of experience in some areas all contribute to my character, integrity, and to my identity. I don't repeat most errors because I have learned a lot from each one. I am committed to leaving a situation better than I found it, and to making a positive contribution in the lives of those who interact with me, even for a short time. My acts of kindness also contribute to identity, character, and integrity. If I am not kind, then what am I?

Character and integrity, both of these seem lost to most youth in the world today. How sad.

I know. I'm a teacher and I address these things in practical ways in all my classes on a regular basis. Some results are encouraging. Where I live, if a student makes a racist remark in class, the other students turn on him like half-crazed wolverines. Especially the girls. The boys are more subtle, but still clear.

Very true Rath! Great way to put things!

And I too agree with you Rusty. Maybe has something to do with lack of parenting because parents now a days are babies themselves?

Learning from the past and acting accordingly is a sure sign of intelligence.

What I identify or define and determine are past crimes or acts of kindness are how I define myself.
My self identity, the type of person I believe I am, determines how I react or behave in various circumstances, or at any time.

BTW, I expect to this coming year to be a big improvement for me over recent ones.

I hope so! 2012 was actually a decent year for me. And am unsure how a year could be any better than that one.
Report as
Wow that's great it feels good knowing people that can say that; I hope I can say that at the end of this year.
Report as
I hope so too, and wish the very best for you. What do you want out of the year? Sometimes setting small goals really helps. Then at the end of the year you have a check list of things you accomplished. It helped me. I suggest it!

Report as
Well there you go. So if you can accomplish these few things, will you feel like 2013 was a decent year?
Report as
Oh, when I do that it will be way more than decent, it will be fantastic and such a relief.
Have a great year Cj

Everything you do, no matter how big or small, affects who you are.
I would not change a single thing, good or bad, as that is why I am who I am.
