Juxtapositions

I hate social media but I love attention
I love being smart but I hate show offs
I hate social status but love airport lounges

I love driving safely, but hate when others do
I hate to be judged, but love literary criticism
I love fancy cars but hate ostentation

None of the above make any sense. It is quite honestly an embarrassment of contradictions. Even the most balanced of us has quirky aspects which jar the observer.

It’s ok, it’s human and it need not make any sense. It’s acceptable to sometimes to not make sense, we are all a work in progress.

I loathe the expression “What makes him tick.” It is the western mind, always looking for simple and singular solution, that uses the foolish expression. A person not only ticks, he also chimes and strikes the hour, falls and breaks and has to be put together again, and sometimes stops like an electric clock in a thunderstorm.
