As a kid, I always used to wonder about all those criminals and thieves that why are they like that and i used to think because there is no one to love them, or they had a very bad childhood.. And being loved makes you a nice person who wants to keep getting more love from everyone!! While i have no idea if that makes sense to you but i would love to hear from everyone if this thing can be true to at least some extent!! So what do you think??

Those person who commit that crime they love there family very much that why they do that crime. If they do not do that there family will be hungry because they do not have jobs to support there family. So they are not bad people they do not have choice so they do that.

They are the one you call will do anything for love. If they don't do that there love ones will be hungry so they are so desperate to some cash so they do that.

Yes love will always make a person to do good things,but sometime loving people also do bad things after coming in relationship with bad and sin people.

ofcourse being loved and being surrounded by love is going to make a better person out of everyone. in love, you only want whats best for the person. and if you have lots of love, then you can only spread love.

It does make you a better person. It's not a guarantee though that you won't become a criminal or something. I mean, there are those who engage in criminal activities who grew up in an atmosphere of love and close family ties. I guess what I'm trying to say us that there are other factors to consider why some people commit crimes. Like for example a father stealing in order to have money to feed his family. This is a crime borne out of necessity and not necessarily because the person hasn't felt loved or had a very bad childhood.

Somehow being loved could changed a person to become better because a person has been given value or importance. I myself can testify to that. Because of my parents love for me, everyday I always feel that I become a better person. Everyday is special because they are there. Plus from the love you receive from other people whom you think loves or being nice to me. That is such a great feeling that makes be become a better me.

I don't know. I think it's still me. I can also imagine it depends on who is loving you. Can make a big difference. Also I think it's not about being loved but about the feeling you are loved!
