So many times we ask of others and others ask of us, why are you this way, not that way; why don’t you take that path instead of this one, why not feel this way when you want to feel that way? There are no real answers to these kinds of questions, primarily because no one is completely one-sided. We cannot say that we are always prudent or always passionate or always prefer salty to sweet. Maintaining a strict, unwavering routine is not in our nature and beating ourselves up over having missed a part or changed a part of a routine is counterproductive, as is castigating ourselves because we have a feeling of anger or satisfaction over something we “normally” happy or dissatisfied about. Certainly routine and a single face we show to the world can be comfortable and relatively easy to keep up since they require no thinking or inner appraisal, but following that course of action does not allow you to be real or whole and, just as important, or more, it does not allow you to know, or even be acquainted, with your own self. If you are partly tree-hugger and partly developer, show it; it you are partly liberal and partly conservative, show it. Don’t we all have many facets to our personalities?
