Agreed. But the interesting thing about human psychology is that people will often break their values to meet their needs.You can't change ur childhood.
That's why core values can't be change, it's always present.
Example 1: A good man (or woman, either way) might have strong values and believe in marriage, monogamy, trust, and honesty. But, 6 years into the marriage, his wife gains 40#, tries to boss him around, is disrespectful, and withholds sex. So the man gets a mistress and cheats. He had key needs for passion, connection, respect, and sex and broke his values to meet these needs.
Example 2: A man has strong values on honesty and integrity, but loses his job. He gets an offer to do some work and the business owner will pay him under the table in cash, tax free. He takes the offer. Or, he pulls a Walter White in Breaking Bad to support his family. He broke his values to meet his needs.
People do it all the time.
