Doing the right thing isn't always easy, and sometimes the right decision can hurt people. To do the right thing, you have to decide what is the best for you and whoever else might be involved. I've been bullied from the day I was born, and around the eighth grade is when I learned to just deal with it on my own. I was having a good time with my friends in art class one time in the eighth grade, and this boy came up to me and told me that I was acting too childish. It made me feel bad about my behavior for the two whole seconds it took me to come up with a comeback. I told him "You are what you eat." and he left us alone.
Doing the right thing, I believe that its different for everyone and can also be based off of what situation you're in. There was a time when a group of girls kept bullying a girl from our school. One day I had to choose on if I should got tell the teacher or just leave it alone. But I knew what was the right thing to do and I told the teacher what was happening.
doing the right thing could be one of the most realist things you could do. I have a cousin that would always tease me everytime i went over. What i would do is call him names cause i knew it would hurt his feelings so he can stop teasing me.
Doing the right thing is taking an action that abides by your set of morals and is not just done for selfish intent. Doing things like stopping someone who is teasing other people or standing up for others is considered the right thing to do. I used to get teased back in 9th grade cause I was really small compared to most people. I wasn't even 5 foot so I constantly was teased. I just ignored it and didn't engage because I realized retaliation wasn't the right thing to do. I knew it didn't matter cause I would get taller and there was no point in making harmless teasing that didn't bug me into a big deal.
It's always easy to engage back in mean behavior when people are teasing you. I agree with you that being the bigger person was the right thing to do since you realized it wouldn't matter later on.
The term "do the right thing" can be different for everyone. To me, it means to be honest and selfless with everything you do. Even if the truth can hurt someone it is better to tell them the truth and help them work through it. One time when I was teased, was during the entirety of sixth-grade. There were these group of guys who would always come up and try and question me about life in my private school, and when I would tell them they would laugh and make fun of me for it. At the time I didn't do anything out of fear, of course now I understand that I should've talked to someone about it, or even just told them to stop.
"doing the right thing" means different things to different people but its still considered a moral concept. It's doing what does the most good for you and other people who may be involved. Falling into temptation when being alone is always easier and its when i find it teasing to do something that isn't "the right thing". For example one time my moms purse was wide open while I was home alone and i wanted to go eat with my friends so of course i needed money. I was pretty close to just grabbing the money since it was only $5 but i decided not to afterwards.
Doing the right thing is knowing what is right. One time someone was bullying me so I walked away from it.
doing the right thing will more often than not mean something different to everyone, it may be due to ideals, religion, or just how someone feels about the subject. such as when someone was making fun of my friend and i when we where walking home from school one day and my friend had started to cry, i never liked making fun of others but i did to make the ones teasing us stop so that they could understand how it feels to be on the other side of things.
Doing the right thing means doing what you know you're supposed to do even when there's no one around. I was once teased by these randies named Ede & Bryan because of my gaming console preference. I felt annoyed because I knew PlayStation was the superior console but they kept insisting Xbox was. I just ignored them and later beat them in a 1v1 on Call of Duty.
To do the right thing means to do what is most ethical in the situation. A time when I was teased was with my own friends. I am a person that is easy to tease, so my friends take advantage of that and I don't mind. It is never anything serious, just funny things. We all end up laughing and having a good time.
Doing the right thing may or may not always be easy. Sometimes what one considers the right thing, for others it isn't. It all comes down to one's ideals and ethics. Kids now a days like to play around a lot and whether it's playing around or not you get teased often. I usually just don't really pay attention to it and walk away from it.
Doing the right thing is a must in the world if you want to be treated good. When I was younger I was teased about having hairy legs at the age of seven. I really didn't think anything of it but I realized i was being teased so it hurt my feelings.
"to do the right thing" can mean do right unto your self and always be honest even when noon is watching do right. a time i teased was in my elementary school years because of my weight i was just big so they use to call me 'earthquake" and "four eyes"well it made me feel bad but by the time i got to 5th grade i went through a fave of starving myself and depression.id loose my glasses on purpose just because i didnt wanna wear them.
To me, there is no such thing as the right thing. I feel it is more of doing the best thing that I could think of at that time. I used to take every comment to heart, but now, I have just stopped caring. Sure I like to bite back or even start some fires of my own, but in the end, they are just words. They only hurt if you let them.
Doing the right thing means acting in a respectable and responsible way, with consideration of other people around you.I was once teased when I was little by my friends they called names jut because better at school than I was, so I started to study to get better grades.
Doing the right thing means you have to follow correct ethics and morals, being respectable to the situation. Last soccer game I got called for a foul and a kid on the other team was teasing me trying to get a ride out of me. This was frustrating me to no end because all I wanted to do is turn around and punch him straight in the face but I obivouly couldn't. My response to this was simply a witty come back and walked away unfortunately.
A persons prospective is all the difference when it comes to what is right or wrong. Their moral compass and ethics are what defines right and wrong. When I was tormented at school I would try to tell and alert teachers of my situation. They did nothing to help. The lesion learned through years of this cycle is to isolate yourself, and if your assailant confronts you grow a pair and take the beating. You can call for help all you want, but the only person who will help is yourself.
Doing the right thing means standing up for what you believe no matter who or what opposes you. One time I felt teased when when I had a bad haircut in grade school. My "friends" acted as if I wasn't the same person anymore and took advantage of my insecurity. I ended up standing up for myself and asked them if they would have wanted to get made fun of had they been in my situation.
Doing the right thing is not always as easy as it seems because it may have consequences. When i was little I think it was like 3rd grade I used to get bullied and this bully was obviously bigger and stronger than me even though we were the same age. And I honestly didnt care I wanted to square up to him. One day I told my teacher and she said she would talked to him but she never did. I also had to tell my mom because one time he punched me & I was bleeding from my nose & i had a blood stain on my shirt so i couldn't lie. My mom went and talked to the teacher and the kids mom since we knew them.And she told me to not fight back. A week after he approached me from behind & put me in a headlock & I could barely breathe thats when I decided to fight back & I got of the lock and elbow his stomach and elbow his stomach and took out my anger and started punching him..my parents got mad at me but i didnt care because he never bothered me again.
Doing the right thing is the best thing you can do. It will make you feel good inside and you can possibly make others feel good as well. Because it's wonderful following Christ in his ways of the good. Being a follower can be good at times. But being a leader and show other the way of being good.
Doing the right this is making the decision to do something that you might not like but is just the morally right choice. It can be really hard to do sometimes but in the end, it's worth it. When I was in second grade there was a kid who would call me every mean name under the sun and push me off the swings. It really made me mad because sometimes his insults wouldn't even make sense. Once day I got tired of it and returned the favor by pushing him off the slide. Not the morally best decision but it sure made me feel good at the time.
Doing the right thing sometimes means to do something that you might not like or agree with but you know if right. My friend Luis teased me about me skill in Call of Duty BO2. He would say he was better than me and that he could beat me any time, I just stayed quit because I knew I could beat him. He then came over to my house and I had the opportunity to show him that I was better and I did.
Doing the right thing means to do the ethical thing in a situation. A time I've been teased is when I'm with my friends. We're always messing around and it's never serious.
Doing the right thing means doing what is best for all in he situation even when it may not be what you want to do. A time where I was teased was when I was younger and a group of kids decided to make fun of my mixed family. Now that I'm older it doesn't bother me but at that age I was very angry and actually hit a boy.
I feel like doing the right thing isn't something you'll always want to do, however I also feel like it's something you can do with no feeling of guilt or consequence. At times, I'm teased by my older brother. But I know he doesn't mean it. I usually just ignore it and he stops.
Doing the right thing is speaking up or taking action in what you think is morally right. When I would get teased in middle school, I remember not telling anyone about it and how horrible it would make me feel. If it weren't for those painful middle school experiences then I wouldn't have learned that speaking up for myself is important and helpful.
Doing the right thing is when you get this feeling in your stomach and youo just now thats what yoiu have to do. When i was younger I used togwt teased about my weight and it used to make me really sad but now i just dont care
Doing the right thing menas to help someone not because they ask but outta respect and kindness. The time i was teased was in 1st grade because of my shortness and it made me upset. I wanted to hit the kids that were doing it but instead i did the right thing and told the teacher that i was being bullied
Doing the right thing means something you think you should take act in or speaking up. When I was little I used to hate going to my older cousins house because she would always bully me. I knew if I told on her she would beat me up.
To me personally doing the right thing is to hold open doors for other people other than yourself. It's to help the elderly getting into their wheelchair, and get them into their bed. It's is being kind to people even when they don't want it, I do it out of respect.
For me "Doing the right thing" means just being the bigger person and walking away from the situation. I necessary wasn't teased but my coworker and I had gotten into a big argument at work. After the argument was over and done with she still continued to argue and instead of doing something I just walked away from her before anything went down.
Doing the right thing doesn't really mean the same thing to to others. In fact, to me it means the exact definition to this word but it also means that there isn't a just you, the right things are giving respect, helping others, knowledge what is in front of you, be their for anyone who needs a little bit of your time. for example, when I go to clinicals I'm in two- south and there are many elderly people there who feel lonely and just want you to sit down and talk with them. They ask for nothing but for a little of your time that's all.
Doing the right thing is when you do the best solution during an situation, even though we don't feel like its the right thing to do because how we are feeling, but if its for the best than we need to do it.
Doing the right thing is to do something that will impact the world in a good way doing the right thing is going in your own footsteps instead of following someone elses
