Have you thought about someone, “Wow I really wish I could be like them,” or, “What do they think they are doing?”? Have you done the same thing that you despised and wondered, “What does that make me now?”? Well if you said hypocrite, you would be right. Confucius, the founder of most all Chinese philosophy, said, “To know your faults and be able to change is the greatest virtue,” and he said, “What you do not wish for yourself, do not do to others.” If we do to others what we did not like being done to us makes us just as harmful as we felt that person was. Many times why we do these things is because we feel out of control or that we don’t know what else to do to face adversity but spew the same tortures we’ve had done to us unto others. This is particularly detrimental and true in cases of the cycles of abuse. Confucius also said this, “Wisdom is recognizing what you know and what you don’t.” If you do not know how to react to something, sometimes it is best not to react at all and wait for the time when you do. Otherwise, you risk making the situation much worse then it currently is. If you feel that you are not able to currently achieve something it best to find information on what is involved in your goal rather than attempting and failing because of the lack there of.
