To help you understand what influences my actions, I have described the core beliefs that I live by below.
Do unto others as they would have done unto themselves. Life can be an extremely lonely experience; therefore, pursue another's happiness and another may pursue yours.
We react with hostility to alleviate the feeling of Cognitive Dissonance; therefore, in the pursuit of truth, be skeptical of your beliefs. Anticipate your impulses and amend their misbehavior.
