hey all i was just wondering about your views on Hypocricy and admiting about it, cause quite a few things revolving around this topic have become aparent in my life as of late anyways which situation do u think would be the most difficult to deal with..and why?
Firstly, if you do something against what you belevie in and then realize it yourself, and try to change it/make it better/ and make sure you never do it again..but then it leaves you to think about why you did it...
Secondly, if you did somthing hyprocritocal and a friend or family member points it out to you (not in a mean way, just so you know) and then you're left to deal with yourself and the fact that someone else noticed it first....
Lastly, if you've done somthing and either way you've realized it was against what you beleive in and that it should be changed, but then you tell someone (a close friend) for example and they hold you against it and wont put it off although you know that you've changed and wont do it again - but they cant forgive you?
which is hardest to deal with? (sorry this is so long...i jsut thought it would be interesting to see all your points of view)

i knew i was an unwanted child when i discovered my bath toys were a toaster and a radio

if pro is the opposite of con is progress the opposite of congress?

To me, personal integrity is extremely important, so I avoid doing things that could be construed as hypocritical. I stick to my guns. But just because you feel one way about something, then change your mind after some serous deliberation, doesn't make you a hypocrite. Think about it, just because you might have once thought the earth was flat, and then after learning more about the matter figured out the earth was really round, you are not a hypocrite for changing your stance and announcing that the earth is actually *round*.

For me, I held of having sex of a good while because I was taught that it was bad, and I would get in loads of trouble. Then I learned more about sexuality, and it didn't seem to be such a big taboo -- but I was *adamant* about not doing it because i said I wouldn't, i didn't want to go back on my word. at this point, I was just being stubborn. None of my reasons for abstaining were really there anymore, and I was just doing it because I said so. But then I had a partner I really cared for. I realized that there can be such thing as having bad reasons for abstaining. and so, we slept together, and I've been slightly less uptight ever since. Am I a hypocrite. I don't think I am.
