Nature Vs. Nurture: Destiny And Nature And Who We Are?
For example, a good friend of mine went down a dark path after moving to North Tulsa which happens to be notorious for gang violence, garbage in garbage out I suppose. He put himself and others in danger, and I didn’t understand at the time that his environment was to blame. His home life was heartbreaking. Instead of getting loving parents in a safe neighborhood, he got a drug addict for a mother and an absentee father in a dangerous environment. I was terrified by the change in him, especially since I couldn’t understand it. Abuse can also play a huge role in how you turn out, I can’t help but wonder how different he and I would be if he grew up in a loving home and if I didn’t have my first stepmother around. So after hearing about the nature v. nurture debate, I decided to try to intervene in his life and set him on the right path, I figured that maybe with a positive source of encouragement and support, he would change his life for the better. He didn’t have anyone else, and everyone deserves love and support from someone because we can’t realize our full potential
