We become what we oppose

We don’t like something, we oppose it strongly, and we become the same.

We have so many examples around where we see that the people opposing something strongly and vigorously end up becoming the same. For example, some politicians opposing a particular policy and ended up being the same. Or an employee opposing some policy of the management ends up supporting and promoting the same policies when she gets a chance to be on the management.

I am not sure why this happens, but the evident examples are enough to believe it actually happens.

The point is, don’t oppose something so zealously that you end up becoming the same person you were opposing. Understand that you don’t support it, but accept that it’s there. Let it be. And change it when you get the chance.
