People are pendulums

Everyone has a mid-point.
A position which is their true state of character.
But, just luck a pendulum, everyone swings both sides of their midpoint.
Stress, kids, emotions, lots of distractions make people veer from their true state.
But, the pendulum always swings back to the midpoint.
Don’t get too stressed about extremes. The only thing that matters is the midpoint
