Walking the moral/ethical tightrope

We all have reasons for living our lives and making decisions the way we do. I & most of the people I know choose to live life according to some kind of moralistic, religious, or ethical code. Making the right choices in life is sometimes difficult. When I see that I've strayed away from my own or society's values, it's usually because I made the wrong decision for the right reasons or made the right decision for the wrong reasons. Does anyone else feel this way?

I follow basically moral rules that are common sense. I have my own views on how things should be but its nothing completely morally wrong. Still it can be controversial for some cases I suppose. I have made mistakes in some cases. I mean, who has not? Still I have tried to exercise my common sense and have found out that is to be successful in most cases.

In my life I began walking along the 'vegetarian road' at four years old. Then later in my life I went on to the 'vegan road'. I have a vegan diet and I am against animal cruelty. I have my own moral code. I stay within what is right within the society I live in. I abide the laws governing my home country. When I travel to different countries I find it fascinating to meet other cultures. I respect people in Middle Eastern countries by wearing modest clothes that covers my arms and legs.
