Us humans do love to get on our soapbox and have a good old moan about people/places/life that don’t meet our personal standards and expectations. Funny really when you think about the number of contradictions that live within every single one of us. We constantly break our own rules and often do not practise what we preach. Perhaps it’s time to embrace the inconsistency a little?
It’s human to be hypocritical Self-righteousness rather deluded
Yes even the self-analytical
Sometimes contradict I’ve concluded
In all of us live double standards
Perfection is out of our reach
The pious are not always candid
We often don’t do what we preach
Transparency is an illusion
Consistency is an ideal
Pretence just adds to the confusion
We’re often ruled by how we feel
When we’re less judgemental and critical
Paradoxes matter less
It’s human to be hypocritical
And all we can do is our best!
