Once upon a time I

Once upon a time I decided that all humans were hypocrites in some small way, and I decided to live with it. I tried to forgive the small inconsistencies in others and myself. I still do, but…

…somewhere along the line things started changing. Just a little bit at a time. The things I thought would be too hard to do became easier. Simplicity. Celibacy. Vegetarianism. Atheism. One by one, I started giving up the things that didn’t jibe with the beliefs in my heart.

I have a long, long way to go–but now I wonder if that isn’t what growing up is all about. Becoming true to yourself.

Just a thought.
