Lowered Expectations

Seems everyone i know are hypocrites if you look close enough including me I readily admit only on small harmless stuff i like to think sorry to say and am resigned to think this is how almost everyone is and not push them away since that will leave me with no friends.

When a person is as smug and sanctimonious as many are here on the "left coast" as it's been called, you will most likely contradict yourself. No one can be that perfect, even Gandhi was called out on his racism and sexism. Smugness and sanctimony is definitely ingrained in the culture here. Some develop humility as they grow older and some don't, but that's life on the coast.

self-awareness and self-reflection in your post.

You’re right that nobody’s perfect and we can’t just go through life cutting everyone off and expecting all of our problems to be solved.

That said, it might be nice to have people around who match your self-aware energy as opposed to people who don’t notice the damage they are causing to themselves and their relationships.

Great mubley confession.

Seriously YOU are the smug & sanctimonious one. Have you met everyone here? You probably haven't even met a tenth of the population, so don't go painting us all with the same brush just because you judged a few people you've met to be that way.

@OP
Don't feel bad. Life has a way of making hypocrites out of us... like for example we say we'd "never do this" or "never do that" but then something happens that causes us to do the things we said we'd never do. I know a guy who said he "only dated brunettes or redheads and only older girls" (because "younger girls don't know what they want") but guess what? Married a blonde 5 years younger than him.
Best not to make any sweeping statements because you might change your mind or life might just cause something to happen to make you a hypocrite.

Easily influenced by others.
Sarcasm 1. Hypocrisy 0.
HA!

So tired of the mudslinging at born/raised Vancouverites from "new" Vancouverites. If you think that way why do you stay?

So just give up.
Go live in the woods cause friends are overrated and apparently not worth the time nor the energy.
Every person on this planet is fighting some sort of inner demon.
Some just hide it better than others so we should all stop being so judgy.
Live and Let live and try to be nice that's all you can really do.
I'm not saying let people walk over you but there still must be some decent people out there.
Trust your inner gut feelings.

I wouldn't say hypocrites, exactly --

but human beings are quite imperfect. They are full of flaws, contradictions, quirks, and weaknesses. It takes strength of character to really see what flaws and weaknesses one personally has, and to begin working on them.
