I actually have a pretty bad confession, and I want to share it because I never thought about how I might be contributing to something immoral.
We live in a building that is super close. Our floor leaves doors open and we treat it like an open community. After the TIME cover came out we were welcomed back to a supportive and protective group of people.
We also share our technology.
We all share the same internet, have synced iPods, a communal iPad, and any other technological device is a free for all. I thought nothing of it.
Then I realized, if we are all sharing music we would have bought on our own someone is losing money. They probably don’t need the money, but on the same note if everyone was doing it the entire industry would go in the toilet. I felt like a pirate.
Conviction came over me pretty strong. Starting tomorrow we are going to be taking steps to buy all the music we felt like we had stolen.
I had told someone else about it and they go, “Oh, everyone does that!” Well, that still does not make it right.
Do you do anything wrong that is considered acceptable by our society? Confess here, no judgment. (It is therapeutic, I promise!)
