Learning Rules

There sure are a lot of rules in life. When something challenges the ones I've been taught, I tend to bias towards the way I've been taught. It's hard to overcome deeply ingrained beliefs.

When the truth finally overcomes the old rules tattooed in my brain, I get a little angry at myself for not seeing the facts a little sooner. A person can be a little more unforgiving of their own mistakes than of the mistakes of others. It's easier to see the ramifications when they come first hand. That may be why you're harder on the ones you truly love; you don't want them to feel like you did.
