here's a recent observation that has made me realize exactly how important "moderation" is. I've noticed that when a person particularly appears to have a particular dominant trait, they end up being the worst of the exact opposite of that said trait...
it's almost like they just suddenly felt "screw this. I'm over being (insert good trait)" and suddenly decides to act out, directly conflicting with who they were before.
IMHO... those who claims they are an extremist (or tries/want to be one) of something are either in serious denial or are deep down unhappy but too proud to admit it.
here's what I mean in the most simplistic way -
the one who's the "nicest" always end up saying the nastiest things. not the "never thought she'd say something like that" type of nasty but the seriously nastiest thing. almost like they've been holding the words back in their time of being "nice" and now they don't care and is letting it all out.
others are such as -
1. the most permiscuous one ends up mindlessly falling the hardest;
2. the one who never had a comment ends up being the most judgemental one;
3. the toughest one ends up falling into depression;
4. the virgin Mary ends up becoming the slut;
5. the good kid, under "too much pressure" ends up becoming the drop out who's at the brink of an OD at the alleyway;
6. the obedient kids end up going against their parents in the most cruel/hurtful/forceful way;
of course not all of them.. but u see what I mean. people who almost forces themselves to live a certain way or be a certain way almost always end up "giving up" and heading towards the opposite direction...
is this all because we don't practice moderation or because we're in such denial of who we are because we don't admit we can't possibly live up to the expection we've set for ourselves?
I always try not to use "never"... it helps keep the conscious clean - and it helps make u look less like an idiot at the end of the day.
... by the way, while I'm on this, let's not forget the otherrr type out there. the ones who shamelessly promotes themselves as "i never judge people" and "I never talk behind someone's back" when everyone knows they do... those are seriously the ones who make me cringe the most. look in the mirror, asshole. yes, YOU. I seriously hope he reads this.
now lastly, here's MY disclaimer - I'm in no way saying any of the above doesn't apply to me. :) and if u wanna rub one in my face, I'm calling first dibs for the kettle! so u can be the pot! :) xx
ps: this is just an observation... :) don't mean any harm. except to that asshole of course :)
