Just to be clear…

Sometimes I think we get things confused. I do. Like for example, I am almost 35 and this is the first time in my life I have known what irony really is. I learned it in my English 2 class this semester. So, even though I highly doubt I’ll need to know all about poetry and drama and anything about Ernest Hemingway later in life, at least I learned irony. Right?

stubborn = unreasonably obstinate; obstinately unmoving

callous = insensitive; indifferent; unsympathetic

humble = not proud or arrogant; modest; courteously respectful

apologetic = containing an apology or excuse for a fault, failure, insult, injury, etc.; sorry; regretful.

peace = a state of mutual harmony between people or groups, esp. in personal relations; cessation of or freedom from any strife or dissension.

freedom = the state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under physical restraint; personal liberty, as opposed to bondage or slavery

forgiveness = act of forgiving; state of being forgiven; disposition or willingness to forgive.

immaturity = an immature action or attitude

hypocrit = a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, esp. a person whose actions belie stated beliefs; a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, esp. one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.

judgemental = inclined to make judgments, especially moral or personal ones; tending to make moral judgments.

Oh and a definition of irony is this = an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected.
