Some 40+ years ago I developed a deep abiding hatred of hypocrisy. This has been the foundation for my views on politics, business, religion, and interpersonal relationships. I have mellowed much since then. Life rounds off the sharp corners.
Option 2 is wise. A lot to be said for compassion …
Life makes hypocrites of us all at one point or another. Two choices:
- When it’s not your turn as the villain, be that nagging/obstructive voice that wallows in the enjoyment of pointing out others’ hypocrisy…Or.
- Fully integrate this knowledge. Intuit when it is constructive to point out hypocrisy and when it serves no purpose, and it is better to just be compassionate. Because you know: You’ve been there, you’ve done that.
