Slipping Off – Who’s at a Loss?

Photo by Zane Lee

The cheat mentality is responsible for many of our downfalls and the most negative impact attracted by this poor choice is felt by the person making the choice. Let’s unpack.

Cheating on your homework or an exam? Free gratification that teaches us we must be applauded when we’re not putting in the effort.

Cheating on someone romantically? Impacts the self-esteem, attracts guilt and destroys relationships that could have had a more peaceful fallout.

Cheating the law? The fear of being caught and the guilt can bring misery.

Going back to bed in the morning? Well, time slept is time not lived. Time slept when our body and mind had enough sleep is an insult to our being. We deliberately choose to put ourselves on hold, to cross off time from our life. Time we will never get back.

Slipping off is failure as long as we keep on slipping and do nothing to adjust our course. But slipping off also teaches us how to navigate through life and to maintain balance when we are likely to slip off. What are you going to do differently?
