Passions are strong and barely uncontrollable emotions. Being true to your word can affect how people view and feel about you. No one wants to be friends with a hypocrite. How would you feel if someone told you that you should or shouldn’t do something because it was wrong and then they went and did the complete opposite? How could you trust their word? You probably couldn’t. They might not even realize they are doing it. Of course, it is always easier to give advice then actually take it. Everybody just wants to be happy, but sometimes we might have to suppress our wants that give us temporary happiness. Try not to be selfish, sometimes what you want is not always what you need. Be strong and brave. You can do anything. Stay true to your word and beliefs, no matter what the world says. You ultimately know what is right and just, you just have to execute it. Always practice what you preach, or don’t preach at all.
