"Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another" - Homer ‘The Iliad’
There are a lot of people I meet who spend so much time disliking something about another person, or just about something in general. It is something I guess I’ve never really fully understood.
I think we all have a choice in who it is we spend our time with and who we do not choose to spend our time with. If there is something that bothers me about someone else I just say ‘well that’s them and this is me’ shrug my shoulders and move on…
There is no need to have bad thoughts towards them. Just because someone doesn’t choose to live and behave the way you do doesn’t make them or you any worse or any better. Everyone is different, values, beliefs, personalities etc.. Just choose to be around the ones that bring you happiness and positivity into your life, exhale the negative and keep smiling.
Perhaps coming from a large family has been benificial to me, easier to accept that which you may never understand. I love them all, completely great in their own way, even if I don’t completely get or agree with them.
I just think people need to worry about themselves and stop letting others consume them. Until I am perfect, and I will never be, I can not sit and put other people down just so I can feel better for one moment, only to realize I actually feel worse.
