    Not really. But I have ethics. If I consider something wrong, ill know it when I see it. Other than that I dont have any "morals" because I dont have any moral prerequisites for an action being "good" or "evil" in itself; its not something I think about gives me a headache to be honest. But I do consider some things wrong, its just that im what you call a moral emotivist, Ill know it whe I see it.

    I have a very strong sense of right and wrong, which I guess prevented me from being a rebellious teenager.

    So do I. I mean, most sane people know right from wrong, I just don't care whether it's wrong or not...I typically do it anyway.

    Base empathy.

    When people are rude to you, you want them to be nicer. But when you're rude to others, you want yourself to be nicer. What you do to other people, you do to yourself. If you uplift and encourage others, you yourself feel it. You can feel yourself 'deflate another' and that's how you also feel bad.

    But revenge and being hateful feels good, at least at first. They say revenge is better served cold. I'm not so sure of that. Revenge is better served hot and fiery.

    So if you were hungry and you really wanted to eat, but had no money, would you steal food?

    Revenge feels good right at the start, but then I feel like shit afterward. Kinda like knocking up a girl and regretting it.

    my morals amount to: maintain individual boundaries with honesty.

    no, this does not always hold true. and it leads to a deflation of any form of real, individual emotion.
