it is a part of human nature to judge others very severely and, when the wind turns against us, always to find an excuse for our misdeeds, or to blame someone else for our mistakes. by doing this we are sometimes deceived by our selves that we forget what the truth is.

I think you hit the nail on the head. "Self Deception" so many people fall prey to this I think b/c they see it as being a failure or some sort. We ALL fail at one time or another. It is not the falling that counts its how many times you get back up. I am dealing with alot of this right now with my husband he just will not listen to what I want and need and then does not understand when I act the way I do. I have lost him over this concept.

I think it is in us to do just that quite frequently, and better yet, sometimes we move the moral and value standards to accomidate ourselves and others for evil behavior, and once we move the line once future generations generally find it easier and easier to move the line again and again, until we have only one or two standards such as, do not kill. and then we will excuse ourselves again based on one or two cases, and it will be ok for the majority as long as we all use the same excuse... we need to have hard line morals and standards, otherwise injustice will be served.
