Sigh: I know it's a protective mechanism so we don't have to deal with 'cognitive dissonance', so hypocrisy and self-delusion are fully within our evolutionary rights, but damn it, damn it, damn it. It just doesn't make it easier.
80% of people's conversations seem to be about self-justification. I find it horrific. Perhaps it's because it's so much more obvious than it used to be. I have decided X and therefore I must vainly fight tooth and nail in a delusional fantastical world that X is what I always wanted, 110% right, aren't-I-so-amazing-because-of-it. I can't deal with inconsistency masquerading as egotistical coherence, especially when it is used as a way of judging someone else. Vomit, vomit, vomit, vomit, vomit, vomit... And any time I do the same, I vomit at that too. Just lots of vomit. Ladies and gentleman, we have a vomit show on tonight.
