    You were fortunate to have parents who set a decent example as you mentioned in a comment and that you made a conscious decision to step away from the attitudes of people around you. I wonder if the Burns twins had a similar experience -- a parent with a big heart and/or family/friends who led the way for them to be positive and influenced their generous spirits. Or, they made an awesome decision to choose a path different from what they observed in others. Whether it was one or both of these things, or something else, I'm happy you three found each other.
