I love you, I love you not…I love you
Did you ever have a love-hate relationship? It’s that relationship where you love someone yet can somehow hate them at the same time. I’m currently having one of these relationships and it’s with my conscience.
My conscious is great as it guides the Dose to better behavior. It helps me stay on the straight and narrow, so to speak. I like that. Being a person who is risk averse, my conscience ensures a reduction in self-induced troubles.
In the same vein, my conscience taps me on my shoulder at times the Dose gets a bit snarly or testy with others. These are the times I hate my conscience. “Leave me alone. Don’t you know I’m only human?” is my plea.
But my conscience loves me… no hate in sight. It’s my conscience that gets the Dose corrected along the way in the path of life. You see, getting snarly and testy needs to be addressed regardless of my own nature. The Dose wants to be reminded to apologize to others when appropriate. I need correction… if honest, we all do.
Do you hear your conscience? Remember, it only whispers words of love. Listen up!
