The hardest action to take is shoving ourselves out of the way, extraction from situations that simply serve to degrade our standing is easier said than done.
I liken the enunciation of this fact to communism; in that it only works in theory, but when we reach that time of reckoning or “breaking point” will we follow through or follow along?
As I hash this thought process out, I’m realizing something, a reality that I’ve swept under the rug time and again, but the weariness I feel in lieu of the endless wrestling with it affords me a resolve that is empowering.
I’m a hypocrite and that’s the long and short of it.
When we don’t act out on what we know should be done, particularly when it comes our aspirations, opting to throw in the towel, to abdicate… Frankly, I think it’s criminal.
Are you guilty of the definition below?
1. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.
2. a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.
You can’t see me, but I’m waving my hand, guilty as charged. But, I’m announcing my retirement from hypocrisy, effective immediately. And if “I” dare to get in “my” way “I” will get knocked over with impunity, enough is enough.
This will be my best week, ever!
