A hypocrite is someone who attacks other people for bad behaviors which they themselves have been guilty of, and they are unwilling or unable to acknowledge the fact that they have a double standard, that what they have said and done is okay but what the other person has said and done is not okay, is evil and unforgivable. This is wrong. We don’t have any moral high ground to instruct others how to live when we are guilty of the very same thing we are accusing them of. This behavior diminishes us and makes our argument to others hollow and meaningless. It prevents a true meeting of the minds. It is an obstacle to resolving conflict. It keeps everyone in a state of judgment and anger such that no one is at peace. The solution: Be a role model of right action. Be consistent in thoughts, words and deeds.
