We are born innocent, we are totally oblivious and ignorant to everything around us. We're in a total state of dependence. I feels its the environment that surrounds us, the people we grow up with and the experiences that we encounter that direct our moral compass and determine whether we are good or bad.
I think that our parents are crucial in defining the person we become. For the first five years of our lives we are totally dependent on them. In most cases our parents are the people we first make connections with, they're the first people we love, therefore we are highly influenced by their actions. If our parents convey kindness, happiness and care we are automatically more inclined to portray and express these emotions to others as we grow older. We felt and feel loved by those actions and we want to share that. I truly believe the environment and people we grow and interact with shape us as human beings.
Each day we are learning new things about ourselves and others. Each day that passes we make decisions which define us as good or bad people. As we grow older we have to rely on ourselves and our morality to determine whether something is good or bad and I think that the morality that we rely on is that of one shaped by our parents and early childhood environment, not by whether we were born good or bad.
