I decided I would keep writing about this subject as it has somewhat sparked some people’s interests.
For some reason there was a discussion yesterday that involved the question, “Do we know the true nature of people?”. I had to think about it a while but ended up deciding that right when you think you know someone, they change. Maybe for better, maybe for worse. People are changing all of the time, that is what keeps us interesting. But it also makes others confused and angry at times.
You think you know someone extremely well, then they turn and do something that is completely unexpected. Does that mean that you like them less? It could. But if the person changes for the better it could also push you away. Maybe you become jealous or untrusting because they are not the same person you used to know.
I think the thing that makes me the most frustrated is that people as a whole use excuses to cover up their own mistakes/wrong doing or their own conscience. We all do it. Why? Because excuses are easier than facing the facts. No one wants to be told that they are a slow worker or that they do understand something, so they make up an excuse.
How do we get around excuses? More on that next time….
