anything outside the norm with disdain and disbelief, like their life depends on the status quo or something. I just don't get it.
I know I do this; where I feel I know what someone else is going through to the point seeing that they are just tied to a system that they can't or
at least refuse to escape as if they have no effort think for themselves...
but I have come to understand that I do not
know what is exactly going through that person's mind. what I would see as 0% intuitive
understanding or 0% self-evaluation is not fair. Even if another tells me what their values, concerns, thoughts are, and I compare them with my own in
evaluation of how they are capable of understanding themselves, I don't know how they really reflect on their own thoughts.
I also think we don't see the moments in another person's life when they are most likely very introspective. I cannot evaluate another person's
experience based off their actions and responses, their self reflections and the affect to their values are theirs and theirs alone.
what I believe is the best experience in life, may be frustrating and helpless to someone else - If someone is only living for simple peace and
happiness, then there is no need for an examined anything, the most basic positive emotional reactions come from experiencing the externals of life
(what makes you happy) and not from trying to reason or contemplate, which can even result in stress for those that have a hard time changing their
automated way of thinking.
I just believe some are more susceptible to conform and be shaped by their surroundings, teachings, material possessions vice others; who keep
suspicion in what they come across, understand it, and then understand why they understand it.
