Don’t tell truth to someone who likes hearing lies

The dude who likes to visit strip clubs doesn’t want to hear that it brings the worst out of him.

The doctor who likes to take bribes doesn’t want to hear how it’s unethical. It’s called the hippocratic oath, not the hypocritical oath, you say. He stops talking to you.

The girl who wears religion in public and barfs n-word in private doesn’t want to hear how crazy that is.

It’s a big fucking waste of time.

Only thing to do is to notice the things in others we don’t like.
And remove that from ourselves. Like Warren Buffett says.

That’s a full time job.
