Stones and Glass Houses
I have many pet peeves in life. So many that I honestly don't know how I function in everyday society. But somehow I manage... unless it's one of my major pet peeves.
Most of my pet peeves are nothing serious and I can usually deal for the time being. But there are few that I get under my skin. Like really under my skin. And once that happens, my Zen bubble that I like to stay in pops and all bets are off. #NoFilter
Hypocrisy is one of those pet peeves that can easily pop my bubble. I'm a firm believer that your actions should match your words and all that you stand for. I'm not for do as I say, not as I do. That phrase wouldn't be necessary if people just practiced what they preach.
We all have been hypocritical at some point and usually takes someone else to point out our glass house that we live in. But even then, some people still choose to throw stones as if their life is picture perfect.
If you want people to take you seriously, then be a person of your word. Be a person of your sermon. You can't tell one not to do abc even though you're out doing abc. What example are you setting? What point are you making?
It's one thing to make mistakes, learn from them, and then pass them off as wisdom to someone else. It's another to continue those mistakes, actions, etc and tell someone else otherwise.
We all live in a glass house to some degree so keep your stones where they belong.
Peace and Light,
