Contradiction

We love and adore someone who drives us absolutely batty.

We admire something someone does and are stunned that they could do it.

We continue to have hope when everything is shouting at us to stop believing.

We smile and laugh when our hearts are breaking, or broken.

We speak love but act hate.

We think possibility but do not take action.

We know better but ignore our knowledge.

We behave thoughtlessly towards the ones who mean the most to us.

We want respect but don’t know how to show it.

We preach tolerance but only accept you if you agree.

We want what we are not willing to work for.

We want things to be different but are not willing to change.

We want to be understood but are living contradictions.

  3. This is so true, Colleen. Sadly, very true!

    Oh – so true. We are a mess of contradictions. And behind the scenes of your written piece – once again – you have provoked my curiosity in terms of the “inspiration” for this one, Colleen. Could be so many things. I see so many parallels in my life right now.

  5. I am the Queen of contradiction Colleen! ❤

    yes, always a double-edged sword –

  7. We are all contradictions, paradoxes, dichotomies. Glad I still have some hair left on my head trying to figure some things out. Guess just accepting human nature as–is is as good as it gets to me understanding much. 😉

    Perhaps when the contradictions cease life stops being an adventure and the growth on the this earthly plane ends..

    Yep! That’s being human 💛

    Wish for clarity on why some of these exist within us? I agree we are imperfect humans so we cannot expect things to be in agreement. I see contradictions every day, Colleen!

    We are so … human, MBC? The first step is to notice, as you do so well here, my friend.

    Agreed, humans have many contradictions.
