On Being a Hypocrite
I've had some interesting thoughts swirling around in my head this week. I had something happen to me... won't go into details. But I was hit upside the head with an issue that I believe strongly about - intellectually, morally, etc. I found out it is a lot harder to deal with when the issue is in front of one's own face and one must follow through with the words one has been spouting on the subject.
Hmm. Could it be I'm not as open minded and accepting as I thought I was? Probably. Or could I just be struggling with some of the same responses that most people would have when an Idea suddenly becomes Reality In Front of Your Own Nose?! Probably that, too. I'm going to work intentionally on living my life in a way that demonstrates my beliefs. It's good to have real-life reminders!
Thank you, wonderful Book Club, for letting me spew my thoughts, incoherent and otherwise, and accepting me and helping me sort through them all. Learning is sometimes hard but nearly always fun!
