Just a debate I fell into some time ago that still keeps me thinking. The main point is- Do peaple who fell into bad situations and climbed out, are more deserving then others? Does falling into a pit and climbing out makes you more deserving of hapinness and respect then those who had'nt fall at all? For example: A person who quit smoking is more respectful then a person who never smoked in his life? Sure, There are more examples that are far more severe. I've been told yes, they are more deserving. But I disagree. I cant help but thinking that in life you can get to the same point as others while taking different rodes, developing into the same point by taking different actions. That happiness, respect and wealth are traits we can earn and deserve by different actions. What do you think?
