    Guilty For Hating Something That I Myself Is Doing

    This might be a famous act for hypocrisy but I am still open in unraveling it. I never like people who are irresponsible because to me those are the ones who are not living life in their maximum human potential. Being responsible goes with the basics in life yet everyone keep on...
