Hypocrisy abounds

Hypocrite is defined as; a person given to hypocrisy. Hypocrisy is defined as; the assumption of moral standards to which one’s own behavior does not conform.

They come in all shapes and sizes, all ages and genders and they’re basically all alike. By that I mean they all have a hidden agenda, hidden behind the sanctimonious attitude that they would have others believe of them…but no matter how hard they try, their true colors eventually bleed through.

Why…because their true nature is stronger than their false identity and becomes obvious fairly quickly, to all those around them; especially when they continually stir the shit. I find myself in a situation where people have chosen to make assumptions about me, rather than take the time to get to know me.

Granted, I’m a very private person and only allow others to see those parts of myself that I choose to share, but still, this is no excuse. These are middle-class, educated adults I’m referring to, who seem to be stuck in a time-warp somewhere between Jr. and Senior High, only as adults they’re even more caddy than the children I went to school with. It’s a sad thing to witness, and a very upsetting thing to be caught in the middle of, because there’s no rhyme or reason to it…they simply do it because they can’t seem to control themselves and take some sort of sick pleasure in creating and spreading rumors about things which they have no clue.

And maybe that’s it in a nutshell…

People have always been quick to succumb to misconceptions about that which they don’t understand; that makes them act out radically and that eventually lends itself to hurtful and spiteful behavior at the expense of others. This is certainly no excuse or justification for this type of behavior, but something to consider and think about, the next time you’re contemplating ripping the face off the hypocrite who just slandered you before your peers. A wise man once told me; he who stirs the shit, goes home at night with shit on his stick!

Something to think about…….
