"I mean do people just get where they are in life now by lying, cheating and stealing?"
In the US?
Yea, pretty much.
What I want to know is how do these people sleep at night?
I don't think they do. Have you seen the statistics on the amount of pharmaceuticals people take for mental problems alone? Most of these people just don't understand the consequences of selling their soul. They never reflect, choosing instead to drown out that voice inside that is crying out in pain.
I think it is great that you question. I just hope you choose the right path.
I also grew up dirt poor and even tried to help the parents out with paper route money sometimes (they never took it). I wouldn't change that period of my life for the world. I think if you are a moral and just person, you can do more for your children than you ever could with material objects alone.
Maybe you are looking at this situation from the wrong angle?
