No one ever taught me to steal. I knew it was wrong but simply had urges to act upon it. My first item I ever took was 3 small tattoo packages for kids. I wasn't caught in the store but by my mother an hour later. I stupidly took off my sweater and forgot I had the tattoos hidden there, lol.

It's a combination of a strange rush that stealing causes in the brain and the simple greed humans have in them. You don't need to teach a child to steal, because it's human nature to have the urge. You teach a child not to steal, because it's logical. Stealing causes conflict within yourself and with others.1

I have stolen before too. I always felt that my mom didn't love me and would not ever buy me anything, and that we were too poor to get anything because my mom always made me feel like we couldn't afford anything so I stole here and there... this and that... because I was afraid I would never be able to get it... I know stealing is wrong and slowly I have learned to stop stealing and I seriously learn to trust in God more that if I really needed something that God will provide for me...1
