The upside of hypocrisy

"Oh, I have a high regard for hypocrisy...It pays lip service to an ideal which must, therefore, exist. It recognizes that there is a Good. In its own way, it is a token of civilization. "
Ariana Franklin, The Serpent's Tale

This made me think.

'Pretending' to be kind and/or genuine, means you are paying homage to that ideal which must therefore be the true base of relationships.

And it takes 10 repetitions to create a habit. Ignorning your discomfort with networking - or most anything - by going through the motions can change your comfort zone. Going through the motions can bring you closer to the ideal.

I have a new respect for the concept of hyprocisy. lol
