Standards and practices

I'm really hard on people, but I'm outgrowing it. A little. Sometimes.

Maybe it's just a matter of having a little more heart. My standards aren't changing; I still believe what I believe. But the kinds of inconsistencies that drive me up a wall in the abstract are usually just foibles I tend to accept in people I know and love (and those they accept in me). I still hope we will all be delivered from our self-centeredness, and I have good reason for that hope. In the meantime, I can at least ease up a bit and stop being such a mean bastard. It makes me miss a lot.
