The topic of conscience is something which I always question and ponder.
The difference from one person to another is fascinating in what they consider and deem to be both right and wrong. I understand that we are all governed by different societal values and deterministic values, however when it comes down to behaviour, crime and judgement why are our consciences all so diverse.
I find myself a prime example of someone whose conscience is a controlling factor of my life. I weigh the consequences and the benefits of a situation to establish what is best to do, whilst many others may jump straight in. Perhaps I am too focused on morals and judgments to not be free and spontaneous, but I do not find myself in trouble very often.
Is my conscience overacted compared to others, with constant worry and fear. Or is it others are more care free.
"If you've ever done someone wrong and then found yourself unable to look
that person in the eye, you've experienced the power of the human
conscience. It has a tremendous power over the spirit to either bring it great
strength or to sap it of its power"
