Dirty Hands

The downfalls of a person can be easily overlooked.
Unfortunately, the statement above does not suit me.

It's quite troubling for me to understand how it took me two years to realise how irritating a few of my close companions can be. It is also troubling for me to know that all this time I've been in a circle of people that I promised myself not to be around with.

Is it safe to say that this technically isn't hypocrisy? Is it safe to say that I'm not a hypocrite still?
I hope so.
