“values” and “values” are terms that have become so ingrained in English that they are used in almost every speech, conversation, and writing. As a result, the term has become so loaded with meanings that it has become meaningless. However, what we often don’t consider is that our values are not defined by what we want, but by what we are willing to sacrifice.
There are two ways to write a value sentence. The first is to say, “I value being a writer.” The second is to say, “I value being a writer because I am a writer.” The latter is a much more meaningful statement because it means what it says. The first is really just empty words. And they can mean anything.
Which is why it’s so important to write them down. The values that we hold in our minds are not the values that we are actually willing to sacrifice. We are not willing to hurt ourselves or others to get them.
Values are more like a “set of expectations” than hard and fast rules. They can be abstract and vague, but they are not vague, they are not empty words. As our values change, so do our expectations. We might say that we value being a good person, but if we don’t actually think that way, we will likely not be good people in the future.
Values can be so nebulous that people who really have no idea what they are might try to make them into something they can be, but only in their own minds. For example, a religious fanatic might say that they value faith, but they may not be willing to sell their soul to get it. This is why it’s so important to figure out what you value in your life, because it may not align with your values.
The values are the things that you find most important to you in life, it’s about what you like to do, what you have respect for, and where you come to a point of no return. You will have a lot of struggles and problems in life, and these things may not be worth what you really want.
Values are everything. You can think of them like a kind of value wheel. You have a series of different values, which you can turn on and off like a light switch. The ones you turn on are more important to you than the ones you turn off. When you turn on the ones you value the most, you will find that you have a lot more to live for.
Values are pretty self-explanatory, but the question we often ask ourselves is, “What values truly matter to me?” Some of our most important values are family, friends, and community and the like. You can see this by thinking of what motivates you to do things like go to church, volunteer at a soup kitchen, or help clean the school cafeteria. Those kinds of things are more important to you than most of the other values.
This is true not just for our lives, but for the lives of the people who come into contact with us. Our values often color who we are and how we treat people. In the case of kids, they often influence what they do, or not do at certain times. For example, they may be more interested in sports than they should be because sports is more fun and interesting, but they may also choose to spend their time and energy on things that aren’t fun and interesting.
