I have a crisis of conscience.
There was a deal I negotiated that ended up collapsing a while back. I negotiated it in good faith, believing that both parties really wanted what they claim they wanted.
On paper, I have no involvement in it since I own neither any share or hold any position with either party, however, I was the name and trust with which the deal was negotiated based on.
My conscience is saying to make it right, but my knowledge of both party is that they both acted some part on bad faith.
My experience in the past says that “No good deeds goes unpunished.” Of which, the act of making things right is one of those good deeds.
So I am here looking back at my life, reviewing all the good deeds that I’ve done which ended up screwing me. Also, making things right will not make any difference in either party’s situation.
But it’s what made me who I am today and the experience taught me how the world works. Which might have inadvertently contributed to my success because I no longer do good deeds.
So why is my conscience telling me to go ahead and do the good deed?
