Your life is governed by the decisions you take and how you move forward. In this process, some decisions will be right and some would be wrong. Some of the decisions you take in life would only impact you but some of your decisions may have an impact on the people around you. Therefore, you must have an idea of what is right and wrong in life as it can affect many people.

The idea about right and wrong in your life will depend on the moral knowledge acquired. The first thing that you must know what is right and wrong when you speak. When you know the right things to speak, life would be peaceful. In the end, every act of yours will fall under the universal dimension of morality. The moral dimension can be from good to bad to neutral.

During your upbringing, you are taught a certain set of behaviour. Whenever you do something, it will influence your upbringing. The values and belief are used to justify the actions that you do in regular life. Sometimes in life, you have to lie according to the circumstances. The level of wrong in a lie will depend on the impact it can have on people around you. Therefore, wrong and right in life will depend on the circumstances and ever-changing situations.

Humans pass on genes from one generation to another. We are the products of evolution. The definition of right and wrong in life keeps changing with time. It is the acceptance level and norm that determines whether something is done is right or wrong. We need to understand that our moral sense also changes according to the evolutionary lens.

Often the things you do suffer from the opinions of others. In such scenarios, if you feel something you did was right, you should not change your mind. Do not waste your energy proving yourself to be right. The right will always stay right no matter what happens.
