How does one acquire a moral center?
Theories abound on this concept. Lately, though, I wonder how I acquired my moral center. Doc insists that there must have been some adult in my life with a positive influence, but I come up empty in trying to think of someone. I would love to know how one acquires a knowledge of right and wrong when there are few to no role models for such concepts.
Lately, I’m troubled by what I’m uncovering in therapy. I find myself wondering how I even have my moral code. How do we learn right from wrong with a childhood full of wrongs?
I once asked my sister Cate this question and she remarked, “The Cosby Show?” I laughed, but she may be on to something.
