I believe we have some moral obligations in this life to lift others up, too, not to just live for ourselves.
You have the responsibility to make sure they grow "strong character" according to your personal viewpoint? Someone is living a lifestyle of hedonistic enjoyment? They keep living their lives in the way they see fit and are having a good time? We've GOT to stop that from happening!! lol

This is exactly the issue in my opinion. People trying to police their fellows instead of living their own lives is the root of a lot of relationship drama.

The only correct answer to these kinds of discussions. Live your life, stop trying to control the people around you. If you are secure and happy within your skin I guarantee you that how you view the actions of those around you will be less of a burden.
