My recent observations of life have been very intriguing yet repulsive at the same time. I don't understand why people need to pretend to be someone else on a CONSTANT BASIS. You don't need to identify with a specific group, clique or whatever, just be yourself. The problem with having an identity within these groups sets specific rules and images for everyone. Since everyone underneath it all is unique and different, these people are forced to hide behind a certain personality that differs from their own true self. Even if it's just a small insignificant thing, in the long run it is detremental when the truth comes out. An example of this that truly pisses me off is people who hide behind the Lord. Now, whatever my opinion of God and religion is, I have still studied and taken into consideration a lot of different aspects of it. Now, if you are a person who loves God and follow his word (the bible), that is a perfectly acceptable way of life. It doesn't hurt anyone, and to be perfectly honest, the bible encourages the human race to help others. It's a really nice title to have, but if you mess up, don't try to hide the truth. What these people do is they disobey the word of the Lord and then when questioned about it will minipulate the situation. They won't lie, they just won't be honest and truthful. Taking the questions and twisting them around so that they don't ever actually answer it.. using the words maybe, possibly, could've etc. Just admit that you did it. i.e., q: did you get drunk last night? :a: i didn't get sloppy and incoherant. :q: but were you drunk? :a: i wasn't sober
REALLY people? Just say, yes, i was slightly drunk, i made a mistake.
For those of you who don't know, in the Bible God says it's okay to have a drink, but not okay to get drunk... its in ephisians 5:19ish.. somewhere over there i think. I'll check that out later.
Basically, what has happened is that these people are politicians endorsing themselves.
This type of thing doesn't just happen with "good christians" though, it happens with most people and most situations. And when people are reading this, I'm sure they're thinking "I'm unique and I don't fit into this. I never hide who I am" Chances are, you do. Sorry. I recently hid something from one of my good friends. I didn't lie about it, but I didn't come right out and say it. It's not a good way to be and I tried out for the sole purpose of seeing what it's like. Guilt eats away. Maybe this doesn't apply to everyone or whatever but still.
This is my journal and I'm allowed to vent.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
I urge everyone to make their new years resolution to be to true to everyone AND to themselves. Because this world is disgusting.
