Human instincts are as wild animals, without control they will cause damage and danger. Sometimes words are faster than minds, and acts are faster than words. People who have the power to control their basic instincts are masters of their life.
What happens with the lowest human instincts?
What makes us different from animals? Your weakness is your slave, but if you let it out, it will be your master.
You might be a beautiful, smart, rich and successful person, but if you can’t control what is inside of you, all your life can be ruined in one moment. Simply, when you press one button, your life will explode into tiny pieces.
Margot was a social worker, a woman full of compassion and ambitious. She had excellent results with her clients, they were children with problems in behavior. Everyone at workplace liked Margot, but she had secret. She was drinking during the work time. She was hiding this in very smart ways, with the smell of perfume and gums, but one day she was in rush and cleaner lady found a bottle in her garbage box. It was a bottle of Absolute vodka. That cleaner lady had a son with problems in school, he was reported as violent kid and Margot worked on his case. She made his profile and she was successful in her attempts to gain his trust. But when others discovered bottle, they were searching her wardrobe. They found alcohol in other places and Margot got nickname Bartender. She lost job after the report.
We are humans, fragile creatures, covered with secrets, but some of us are weaker than others.
When we lose control over our vices, they are masters of our life. Other people, who are less successful are the ones who will wait for our mistakes. It is really odd when that pretty woman gets caught in wardrobe in flagranti with her old boss, he was only in panties, and she had a red bra. Secretary and her boss caught in a scandal, how nice subject for gossips in the lunch break. Everyone will have something to say on this topic, and those who dislike grumpy boss and bimbo secretary will be the loudest. They got chance to spit on them.
If we are examples for others, we must show why we are examples. A policeman can’t gamble during his work. A priest can’t talk vulgar in front of his believers. A lawyer can’t be corrupted. How many times we read stories about drunk footballers, even they should have a healthy life? As a human, nobody is untouchable from addictions and vices. It depends how much self-control will person use.
In this life, nothing is for granted. You want to live a beautiful life, but you will pay price for this. You can’t have everything, and if you want to play double roles, you must be master of silence. Hide and bury your dirty secrets that nobody can’t dig this out. We sin differently, but winners are those who hide the best their dirty secrets.
